AIMS AND PHILOSOPHY
ICT is an integral part of all subjects in school and pupils are actively encouraged to develop their ICT skills through designated lessons. The school facilities are excellent with the computer network covering all areas of the school. Students have access to a networked computer within ICT lessons and in any one of our eleven suites. Access to the Internet is heavily filtered and security levels are high while pupils are taught about the safe, responsible use of computers, the internet and email from day one.
At Key Stage 3 students follow a course of study that introduces them to vital ICT skills. This includes word processing, spreadsheets, image manipulation, using the Internet and e-mail as well as an introduction to Computer science.
At Key Stage 4 students are encouraged to continue their ICT studies. The department offers GCSE ICT, as well as the new GCSE Computer Science, both of which enhance the skills developed at KS3.
At Key Stage 5 students have access to two specific Advanced Level subjects, Computer Science or ICT.
