Head of Computer Science
Computer Science is one of our core subjects and students in the first, second and third years study it for one lesson a week. It covers how computers and computer systems work, how they are designed and programmed, how to apply computational thinking, and how to make best use of information technology. Our objective is to give the students a broad technological education that encourages creativity and equips them with the knowledge and skills to understand and change the world.
Computing Science involves the teaching of principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Students use this knowledge and understanding of computer science to create programmes, systems and a range of content.
Our aim is to develop digitally literate students that can use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology at a level that meets the needs of the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
Students have the option to continue their computer studies by studying IGCSE Computer Science in the Fourth and Fifth Year, and A Level Computer Science or BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate in Information Technology in the Sixth Form.
