ICT AND COMPUTER SCIENCE OVERVIEW
ICT and Computer Science allow students to explore the latest technologies and develop a broad range of skills essential to the modern world. Practical elements inspire and challenge, providing a sound base for further study and life in general.
ICT and Computer Science allow the students to develop an understanding of how technology can be used in society and organisations and the implications of its use, knowledge and understanding.
The department has been successful in raising the awareness of technology and digital innovations. The schemes of work now reflect the requirements for preparing girls for an increasingly digital future; computational thinking skills, modern information communication and technology skills, collaborative working online and understanding computer science through problem-solving and programming.
Our aim is for all girls to become critical and autonomous users of ICT, in order that ICT and Computer Science can be a tool to assist them in all their other subjects and throughout their day to day life, not only in school, but beyond.
