Computer Science

Computer Science is an essential part of a well-rounded education, which will develop innovation, curiosity and creativity. A subject that aims to equip young people with skills in problem-solving, critical thinking and complex analytical skills; in a changing world being driven and shaped by advances in technology.

As innovative learners students will try to solve problems by producing professional digital products and learning to write their own programs using text based programming languages such as Python. The subject offers opportunities to develop curiosity by exploring learning questions like Why do machines work with binary? How can individuals communicate on the go? As part of creativity, for example learners create various models like that of a network and systems architecture. As part of the subject, learners will also study emerging developments in technology such as Ai and Machine Learning.

Computing is an integral part of the school curriculum enabling students to acquire digital skills for everyday situations and future employment.

In Computer Science, we ensure that our students leave with the skills to fully embrace a future of rapidly advancing computer technology

Enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities 

Computer Science teachers run lunchtime clubs daily in our IT suites. These offer additional opportunities for students to gain support, develop or consolidate their learning. To promote the development of computational thinking skills, all students studying Computer Science from KS3-5 take part in the Bebras challenges annually. All students studying GCSE computer Science will work in developing their programming skills by working with industry experts from Morgan Stanley. Students are given a range of opportunities to participate in organised competitions and events. Here are a few:

  • Year 7 Edulito Scratch Competition
  • Year 8 British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) Day
  • Year 9 Sumsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition
  • Year 9 Idea Award
  • Hour of Code
  • Year 10 – 13 Raspberry Pi Competition
  • Microsoft Store Educational Visit
