The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Faculty offers students a stimulating learning opportunity with a variety of courses at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
In KS3 students will have two lessons per fortnight and will cover a range of topics that will help them develop their ICT skills and introduce them to Computer Science and concepts. In Year 7 and 8 students will identify and describe a range of computer components and will be able to distinguish the difference between hardware and software. Students are also introduced to data collection, modelling and animation through project based scenarios.
In KS4 Year 9, students who chose ICT as an option follow the OCR Cambridge National ICT and/or the Computer Science GCSE. Those students not opting for ICT or Computer Science follow a one year skills course in Year 9.
The current Year 10 & 11 students who chose ICT as an option continue to follow the Edexcel ICT GCSE award course with the option of completing a double award.
At KS5 we teach the OCR Applied A Level and Computer Science. These courses offer students learning opportunities that can be applied to real-world systems.
Our facilities are available to students after school on a Thursday for 1½ hours.
