Our world is digital. An understanding of computer science will enable young people to make informed choices in their digital world. This is important for all our children, not just those who will become the graphic designers, games programmers or software engineers of the future.

The Computing Curriculum is designed to equip students with knowledge, understanding, skills and a desire to learn more about the three disciplines within Computing: IT, Digital Literacy and Computer Science. 

Qualifications can be taken in GCSE Computer Science and Vocational Certificate in Creative iMedia.  In the Sixth Form we offer A-Level Computer Science.
