During this GCSE, you’ll study the principles and practices of computing and gain confidence in computational thinking and programming.
You will learn to program by writing computer code and developing your understanding of the main principles of problem-solving using computers.
You’ll learn to appreciate current and emerging computing technologies and the benefits of their use, as well as the ethical issues and potential risks involved when using computer technology.
You will learn to apply your understanding to develop computer-based solutions to problems, using algorithms and a high-level programming language. You’ll also develop a range of technical skills, as well as the ability to test effectively and to evaluate computing solutions.
Learning will take place in one of our three ICT suites, with lessons split between theory and practical. We aim to ensure that every pupil learns to develop confidence and problem-solving skills, whilst learning a new computer language – right from the very start of the year.
This subject is taught in a supportive, friendly environment that encourages everyone to fulfill their potential.
This subject is for you if:
You enjoy solving problems. You’ll have an aptitude for logical-thinking and attention to detail, but you’ll also be creative. You’ll be excited by the idea of learning new skills and putting them into practice.
