Curriculum: ICT and Computing Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4, students can opt to study Information Technology at GCSE Level, and the school follows the Edexcel GCSE course.  Some students may instead follow the Edexcel BTEC course in Information Technology.  Both courses have proved to be very popular and successful.

In 2012 we introduced the OCR Computing GCSE, already run for very small numbers of gifted & talented students, now other students with computing as a special interest can choose this course. Students learn about programming in particular and are provided with the hardware to be able to design their own computer software and interfaces.

Any student who has not chosen to study Information Technology through the above routes is given the opportunity to study for the Functional Skills in ICT course which has the equivalent value of half a GCSE grade.
