A Bit About Us

Computer Science is one of the most dynamic, fast moving and innovative sectors in the world, and there is an increasing demand for talented students to undertake careers in Computer Science related industries such as medicine, business, engineering and computing.

Our aim is to develop our students knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of Computer Science like computational thinking, networking and data representation. Our students will also use a variety of programming languages, including python, to solve real world problems.

We provide our students with the opportunity to study the subject at GCSE level, preparing them for study at A-Level and beyond.

The subject is taught by experienced teachers who have a real interest in the subject. We are an innovative department, always seeking new and exciting ways to enthuse our learners. At present the department is in the process of experiencing physical computing through the use of our Raspberry Pi’s.

Extra Curricular

Our extra curricular club will shortly be up and running. Here students will be given the opportunity to continue experimenting with physical computing through Minecraft and Robotics.

Homework

Our home learning provision is set out in detail on the Home Learning section of the website which can be accessed here Computing Home Learning
