The Computer Science department aims to develop courses that promote critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving skills through the study of computer programming, giving students a fun and interesting way to develop these skills, which can be transferred to other subjects and even applied in day-to-day life.
Our courses provide excellent preparation for students who want to study or work in areas that rely on these skills, especially where they are applied to technical problems.
These areas include engineering, financial and resource management, science and medicine.
Comments from a GCSE Computer Science student:
“The world is changing and we are using computers a lot more now. I thought it would be a relevant topic to learn about to help me in future life. I like GCSE Computer Science because it’s challenging. I most enjoyed the programming section of the course because it allowed us to write our own programs.”
