“Computer science empowers students to create the world of tomorrow.” – Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft
Our curriculum addresses the current needs of our students and prepares them with skills to use in the real world. Teaching Computer Science will develop independent learners who can think logically and are able to produce creative solutions to problems. We will provide opportunities to investigate different real-life problems, devise solutions and critique the solutions of others. All students have the right to study Computer Science as this will allow them to break down problems, understand that many solutions may exist and to think critically about different solutions. We will provide opportunities for students to work alongside businesses to see how these skills can be transferred to the workplace.
Computing must be seen as the heartbeat of all learning in the school with skills transferable to other areas of the curriculum and beyond. As such every school-leaver should have an understanding of computing.
It is our intent that the Computing curriculum will develop the students’ knowledge and skills so that they can access the ever evolving digital world that they live in, because they are empowered to create the world of tomorrow and equipped with the fundamental knowledge of Computer Science.
