Computing develops our students’ problem-solving abilities. In our classes, students will identify a problem, work out how to solve it and resolve the issue. We teach the course in its widest context so that the students understand the discipline’s powers and limitations in everyday life.
We are committed to ensuring that students are safe, competent and confident users of hardware, software and methodology. As a department we use the latest technology and collaborate with other departments to facilitate new teaching and learning opportunities throughout the curriculum.

Computing capability is an essential skill for life and enables learners to participate more readily in a rapidly changing world
A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
Students will complete this course equipped with the logical and computational skills necessary to succeed at A-level, the workplace or beyond
We do not currently offer a course in the J6.
