Teaching and Learning:
Computing and ICT are taught to all pupils in Key Stage 3 and is an option at Key Stage 4; Technology forms the backbone of our society and a sound understanding of how things work and their social impact is key to building on our technological success.
At Key Stage 3 pupils study the new Computing National Curriculum. Click here for our Curriculum Plans
At Key Stage 4 pupils study Vocational TLM course at Level 1 or 2.
We offer additional learning support both in class, as provided by Child Centred Teaching Assistants and after school on a one to one basis. More able students are also encouraged to attend the after school sessions where extra and more challenging work can be discussed in a relaxed environment. Extra-curricular classes are run at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Informal study areas are provided at break and lunch times for students who wish to do extra work. We currently participate in the National Lego robotics challenge in conjunction with De Montfort University, The Student Investor Challenge and the Company programme where students set up and run their own business
Staffing and Facilities:
The department consists of 4 full time specialist IT teachers with many years of experience at a variety of key stages.
