Through the development of new applications in science, engineering, and business, Computer Science is radically changing the way in which we experience our world. This programme equips students with the skills needed to contribute to this exciting and rapidly evolving field. We deliver the national curriculum with a range of exciting and fun concepts.
Key Stage 3
At KS3, we deliver computing for 1 hour a week for years 7, 8 and 9. Students are able to decide in year 9 if they wish to continue Computer Science for GCSE. We understand the fast developments in technology and education and therefore know that students entering year 7 are already fortified with plenty of knowledge and experience. We anticipate this and hope to cater for our young computer scientists.
This learning journey in Computer Science will enable students to better their lives using technology. Students should grasp not just a wider understanding of the subject but also its technological implication in the real world. We aim to fuel students with a broad academic knowledge and hands-on experience.
At KS3 we use the following framework to deliver fun and succinct lessons:
|Algorithms||Mazes and robots sequences|
|Coding||HTML, Python, MS Logo|
|Binary Logic||Denary to binary, adding binary, hexadecimal|
|Systems||Hardware, software, networks|
|Systems Data ||Encryption, graphics, ASCII, images in binary|
|Projects||Assessments, programming, spreadsheet|
|Creative||PowerPoint, Publisher, leaflet, animated gif|
|I-Safety||Internet safety, personal detail safety, cyber bullying|
