With this in mind, they learn real world topics linking to the National Curriculum in a mastery format, such as yearly escalated topics; esafety, computational thinking, digital tools, algorithms and programming. 

We are living in an acutely digital age, where modern technologies and data driven identities are part of our learners’ everyday lives. Our vision is to ensure our children know that computing is an essential part of a well-rounded academic offering and prepares them to live and thrive in a world that is rapidly changing. With an understanding that computing acumen is achievable as well as fundamental in a wide range of career vocations. The overarching vision of the Computer Science Department is to transform users of technology into ethical creators of technology. Furthermore, by giving students the tools needed such as the Predict, Run, Investigate, Modify and Make (PRIMM – Sue Sentance) model to build lifelong resilience skills, working with enthusiasm independently, as well as in a team to solve a variety of real world problems.
