Welcome to ICT & Computer Science



Key Stage 3

Due to societies obsession with social networking we cover elements of e-Safety in order to equip our students with the knowledge they require to protect themselves from the dangers that exist within this area. In order to equip our students with the skills needed for life outside school Year 7 will also cover the key areas within Microsoft Word, Excel & PowerPoint. Graphic manipulation and animation software will also be explored to give our students a wide experience within ICT.

Students in Year 8 will study Computing and will study an introductory course looking at the fundamental principles of Computers, enhancing this knowledge with an introduction to various programming techniques using Visual Basic.
