Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think. - Steve Jobs
Computing Science is the study of core computing concepts including programming, web development, databases and computer systems. A large focus is put on design and creation of digital applications that allows for creativity and problem solving.
Pupils will carry out a large amount of practical work and problem solving activities for each of the topics. They will also build their theory knowledge through classwork and independent study. Pupils will be expected to work hard, make notes and complete a fair amount of written work and homework.
Where possible we will use software applications that are free to download or are accessible from home.
