“Our intent is to promote computational thinking and digital literacy at all levels”

Welcome to Computer Science

ICT, Digital Literacy and Computer Science Vision

The vision for the department is to provide a balanced and informed curriculum across all key stages in the school. The aim is for the students to be active and engaged users and creators in the emerging digital economy. The curriculum is designed to allow students to have access to both computer Science, digital literacy and information technology and make informed choices on how they pursue the subjects as they continue their learning journey through the school. The vision is for the students to learn transferable skills that can be applied to future pathways to speed up the research and analysis required to pinpoint key information to further progress in these subjects.

ICT, Digital Literacy and Computer Science Purpose

A high-quality computing education equips students to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Information Technology 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. As active, aware and informed participants in the digital world. We also aim for the students to leave their education here with the skill set to keep their knowledge up to date in the ever-changing digital technology landscape.

Students will learn the skills with the aid of the most UpToDate tools to learn and understand how technology is used in the workplace today and the future.

They will be taught the skills associated with problem solving such as computational and algorithmic thinking combined with software design and implementation.

Our aim is to make computer science fun while keeping the curriculum fluid, ensuring it is current and incorporates all the latest trends and technologies.
