In Computing we give pupils a thorough grounding in how computers work from the inside-out, and how they can be used to solve real-world problems.
A-level Computing is an exciting and challenging course covering a broad range of technical skills and theoretical knowledge. At its heart a practical subject, pupils will develop their coding abilities using a range of programming tools, and by applying their skills to a host of real situations.
In addition to traditional examinations, pupils are practically assessed by solving programming problems in an IT suite under examination conditions. Pupils also undertake an extended practical project on a topic of their choice, usually creating a bespoke piece of software.
