About Our Subject

Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes” ― Edsger W. Dijkstra Computational thinking is an essential skill that help students across a wide range of subjects and in life beyond school. We aim to deliver a curriculum that will equip students with a range of skills that will help them participate fully in life in the digital world. Students will study a wide ranging curriculum that will give them the skills they need to access the Key Stage 4 work. The topics that students study at Key stage 3 include, e-safety, understanding computer systems, cyber security, data handling, app creation, web design, digital sound, image editing, networks, and programming using Kodu, Scratch and Python.
