ICT

Information Technology completely underpins our modern society - with much of it being taken for granted.

Despite the almost complete reliance on computer systems to handle the information that supports our daily lives, ICT is not a subject whose complexities are intuitively understood, they need to be taught. It is therefore essential that all students have a good working knowledge of this fast-changing aspects of twenty-first century living.

Course Content

Years 7 – 9: Very largely practical in nature, our courses aim to give every pupil a high level of proficiency in ICT and also offer a serious but lightweight introduction to computer programming in the context of gaming and animation. A significant amount of time is also dedicated to graphics as well as video preparation and production processes. 

Years 10 and 11: For those wishing to obtain level 2 qualifications, we offer GCSE Computing (OCR) and several qualifications from the European Computer Driving Licence family. Resources: Two specialist teachers teach Computing and ICT, which are taught as one subject to pupils up to Year 9; then as separate subjects to Year 10 upwards. We benefit from four well-equipped ICT rooms and make use of ever-increasing amounts of information on the College Intranet and external online resources.
