A high-quality computer science education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. It has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Our curriculum is challenging and exciting, and enables our pupils to explore a plethora of programming languages..
Year 7 & 9
Our Key Stage 3 curriculum covers a wide range of study including computational abstraction, key algorithms that reflect computational thinking, programming, Boolean logic, understanding technology, app design, and hardware and software components.
Pupils follow the OCR GCSE course which teaches them to develop their capability, creativity and knowledge in computer science, digital media and information technology. Pupils also develop and apply their analytic, problem-solving, design, and computational thinking skills and become well versed in how changes in technology affect safety, including new ways to protect their online privacy and identity, and how to report a range of concerns.
