Computing lessons introduce pupils to the basic skills within Computing covering the strands of communicating and handling information, controlling, modelling and monitoring. All this work is taught in a specialised ICT room.
All pupils are encouraged to take an interest in the more knowledge based aspects of the Computing curriculum by offering a mix of topics that includes movie making, vector drawing, sound recording, photo editing, robotics and animation (drawing, 3D and object).
Pupils take examinations as soon as possible; Level 1 Functional Skills in years 9/10 and level 2 Functional Skills in years 10/11. Functional Skills qualifications cover the basic computer skills needed to function in the modern work place environment.
