Through a broad and varied study of Information Technology, Computer Science and Digital Skills, our students will become effective digital citizens. We aim to develop resilient individuals who are equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to overcome future challenges. Students have the opportunity to become competent users of a range of IT and computing devices, and build appropriate troubleshooting skills. Programming, by its nature, requires perseverance and experimentation, and ultimately creativity. We want students to have the confidence to adapt to changing technologies in various aspects of their lives in the future.
We will provide ample opportunity to embed a strong set of values and beliefs, leaving students with the cultural capital to be responsible digital citizens. Staying safe online and developing a positive digital footprint are vital for today’s young people. We are providing education for living in a connected world.
Our ambition is to motivate and inspire our future computer scientists, and to provide a solid footing for all to fully harness the opportunities of living in this technological age.
Level 2 Vocational:
Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate Year 12 and 13
Year 12 and 13 vocational students are assessed by some exams but the majority of guided learning hours are on practical coursework units. Homework set includes material to learn for exams in booklets and past papers to ensure this learning can be applied. Coursework tasks are set on Google Classroom. After the students have been given guidance on these tasks they are expected to use study time to meet the deadlines set and to act on the feedback given after tasks have been submitted. It is the student’s responsibility to organise their time as required.
