Within the Computer Science department lessons are taught with a spiral curriculum approach so connections between units can be achieved. We strive to provide learning experiences and environments that give students rich skills and knowledge that reflect those required in society, so they can develop and respond to future challenges.
Good quality IT skills enable students to engage positively within the modern work place, while Computer Science skills enable students to take an active part in the design, development and creation of new technologies to be used in the world in which they live. The core of the subject is the understanding of how technology works and how it can be developed and utilised.
We draw and extend understanding from a range of other subjects outside of IT and Computing including Digital Graphics, Maths, and PSHE and embed clear and high-quality literacy and numeracy skills through software development, problem solving and evaluation skills.
