Computing introduces pupils to computational thinking encompassing Digital Literacy, Computer Science and ICT. Pupils will learn the logics based around topics such as hardware, software and programming. It is essential that pupils understand how these need to work together so that technologies serve the purpose of the intended design.
Computing also focuses on designing and creating systems that will meet the needs of a specific audience. Pupils will develop skills and understand the functions of many software packages in the subject of ICT.
The department also has the remit of preparing our learners for the world beyond school, as technology is central to the way we live, work and communicate. Computer literacy is important as these skills necessitate any chosen academic, training or employment paths taken by our pupils.
