Curriculum Intent: Computing and ICT.

Computing and ICT will prepare students for the 21st century world beyond education as information technology now permeates almost all aspects of daily life. By studying computing and ICT our students will develop their creativity and innovation through the virtual universe by designing computer code to solve problems and developing algorithms through the identification of suitable variables and structures.

The purpose of the Computing and ICT curriculum at both Key stage 4 and 5 is to enable students to explore the principles of digital technology through a  way of working  called ‘computational thinking’. This, in turn enables students to become critical, analytical thinkers and problem-solvers; all skills which can be transferred to other subjects and  applied in day-to-day life.

Our curriculum enriches students’ knowledge and understanding of the emerging world of virtual and augmented reality, the internet and robotics. Whilst equipping students to become skilful programmers, software engineers and project managers, we are providing our students with the skills and techniques that are highly sought after in all types of industry.

Additionally, the curriculum nurtures the development of student’s digital literacy. This enables them to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology safely and at a level suitable for the future workplace as active participants in a digital world. This is furthered by our enrichment clubs in electronics, programming and web design enabling students to create a smarter world.

Driving the curriculum design is the Academy learning ethos of the 4 R’s; resilience, reciprocity, reflectiveness and resourcefulness which are not only vital characteristics and skills for life but are essential for what is takes to be successful in our ever-evolving digital world.
