Computing

Computation applies algorithms to data in order to solve real-world problems. Our vision is to develop these skills in our learners and follow the new curriculum “What Matters” Statements.

Computational processes have changed the way people interact with one another and their environment, as well as how humans organise their work, their communities, and their lives. Society, in turn, has influenced the development of computation as people’s needs for processing information have changed. Through these computational processes, the world has been enriched and technological development has accelerated, and seems set to continue doing so. In order to use and create these technologies to their full potential, learners need to know how they work. Developing creative algorithmic and computational approaches can solve challenging real-world problems. However, we must be conscious that there are limits to what computers can achieve. Understanding that there are also wider legal, social and ethical consequences of how technology is used enables learners to make informed decisions about the application of computational technologies. Our vision is to equip all of our learners with these skills to enable them to become ambitious, capable learners.
