Curriculum: Computing, Business and ICT


Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Computing are the tools of everyday life in the modern age. Institutions and workplaces struggle to operate without what has become the mechanism for progress and the primary force of change for today's society.

Our curriculum aims to ensure all students are equipped with the confidence and skills to thrive in the modern age and to become leaders of 21st Century technological development.

At a wider level, we aim to ensure students better understand the tools of the digital age, to be able to solve problems, work more efficiently and become responsible digital citizens. 

Technology has become part of both adult and youth culture and the culture of the workplace and therefore it is vital that students are best educated in how to use it, how to stay safe and how to harness it to their advantage. 

Business is offered to our students at Key Stage 4 and is a very popular choice for students. 

Students will study OCR Enterprise and Marketing, teaching the skills and knowledge to start and succeed in business. We also regularly enter the Young Enterprise competition where students can join an extra-curricular club where we will compete and local, regional an national levels to create a successful business plan and product.
