ICT and Computer Science

What will my child’s learning be like in ICT and Computer Science?

Students are taught the principles of information and computation; how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, students are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computer Science also ensures that students become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

What are we aiming to achieve in ICT and Computer Science?

All students in ICT will be taught a challenging and enriching curriculum which promotes a mastery level of computational thinking concepts. All students will have the opportunity to see computing live in action in the real world and will be able to draw on the expertise of real life computer scientists. The curriculum will aim to produce high level computer scientists and effective problem solvers.
