COMPUTER SCIENCE / INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
Our curriculum is designed to develop and build upon prior e-safety knowledge and safeguard all students against online threats. Students can consider the positive and negative impact of being online across a variety of technology and social media platforms.
We believe in facilitating opportunities for students to interact with computational thinking scenarios in order to enhance their analytical, problem-solving, logical reasoning and mathematical skills.
It is essential to build student awareness of cyber security and emerging technologies so that our students can become workplace ready and are equipped with current and applicable skills for life in modern day Britain.
A key factor of our curriculum is to contextualise learning across all learning episodes through the use and application of relevant real-life experiences particularly within topics such as programming, project management and computer systems.
Students need to develop transferable skills through digital literacy and utilise industry standard software in word processing, spreadsheet modelling, database design, desktop publishing and graphic manipulation. Inevitably this will raise the digital standards of all students, increasing productivity and efficiency cross-curricular and allow students to access to further study and a wide range of employment possibilities.
