Our Computing department aims to provide a varied, challenging experience to students, developing their skills and ensuring they become competent, responsible and discerning users of ICT. Throughout their time at the academy, students will have the chance to get to grips with a range of programmes and computing techniques, including Microsoft Office and specialist packages such as Kodu, Serif Draw and Python.


In years 7 and 8, students take a weekly ICT class, teaching them the basics of the subject through a variety of different topics. In year 9, this continues but becomes focused on building skills needed to complete a GCSE in ICT.

As an option, students can choose to follow a Computing course, which provides intensive tuition in a number of advanced programmes and techniques and counts as an Ebacc subject.
