The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Buildings on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Computer Science also ensures that students become digitally literate – driven, and express themselves and develop their ideas through identifying issues and problem solving – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
The Computer Science department offers extra - curricular activities such as ‘robotics club’ which compete in the First Tech Challenge. During this extra - curricular club students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles whilst being innovative, enabling them to realise the TLA value of Curiosity, exploration and discovery.
