Our ICT curriculum will be delivered in line with the National Curriculum guidelines and aims to prepare students to participate in the Programme of Study with purpose and enjoyment. In the ever changing digital age, students will be taught how computers and computer systems work, designed and programmed.
Students studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.
A structured Programme of Study is applied to provide opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the three main aspects of Computing:
Computer Science (CS)
In which students are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
Information Technology (IT)
Building on CS knowledge and understanding, students are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Digital Literacy (DL):
Ensures that students become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
