In today’s technology-focused world, most of the pupils have already developed excellent ICT skills and are fully competent in the topics covered under the previous ICT curriculum. Computing offers pupils greater opportunity to be creative and use logical thinking skills that would not apply when teaching the standard ICT curriculum.
All lessons take place in one of the school’s computer suites. The computers run windows 10 with a range of software, including programming IDEs and Microsoft Office. The department is always looking at new technological advances and bringing in these where they improve the learning experience.
Beyond The Curriculum
The department offers a variety of extra-curricular activities to students. Activities out of lesson time vary depending upon student interest and current trends. Programming clubs are frequently offered, including the opportunity to work with robot kits such as Lego Mindstorm. Where possible, the department also looks to offer curriculum related trips.
