Welcome to the Department of Computing Science
Our aims are to develop, maintain and stimulate pupils’ curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Computing and to encourage pupils to have open, enquiring minds and to perceive Computing in the context of a wider body of knowledge, skills and vocabulary.
Our view is that pupils should ideally become autonomous users of Computing with the associated skills supporting life long study, the pursuit of personal interests and prospective employment in a modern technological society.To enable pupils to acquire appropriate, transferable Computing skills, knowledge and understanding – progression must feature in the acquisition of Computing skills.
All staff should then feel confident that pupils have a basic level of Computing capability which can be applied to pupil’s learning in a specific area of the Curriculum. Pupils should feel confident enough with their transferable skills that they are encouraged to use unfamiliar software.
