Job summary

Computing has a strong track record, with excellent results at GCSE and A-level. We have experienced and expert teachers that help students from across the ability range to achieve very high grades. We also run a wide range of activities outside lessons such as Cyber Security clubs and programming clubs, with enthusiastic participation from students. We are regular and successful entrants to competitions based on the Raspberry Pi and we run several trips in support of computing projects.

With regard to the curriculum, we currently teach all students up to year 8 and then Year 9 can choose Computer Science as an option. This allows for more teaching time and prepares students well for choosing the subject as one of their GCSEs. Many of these students then progress onto A level, with a high proportion continuing into further education on Computer Science degrees or Computer Science apprenticeships.
