The pace of technological development is as rapid as the growth of opportunities for employment in the technological sector. A growing number of students come to us with a desire to develop their coding skills.

Computing offers students the chance to harness the power of technology and solve problems using carefully-constructed algorithms.

At Key Stage 3, students will use logic to write code in Scratch and Python. They will develop web pages with HTML and CSS. Students will get to grips with binary numbers and will explore the tools available in spreadsheets. They will also reflect on using computers safely.

The aim is to develop creativity and confidence using technology, helping students to use tools effectively as well as to enhance their problem-solving skills.

Students can then proceed to take Computing as an option at GCSE.
