The department is located in one centre and each ICT room has 30 networked stations. Additionally many other classrooms have extra computers for small groups of students to use and some departments have their own dedicated computer rooms. In total, there are 450 computers available for students to use.
Information and Communication Technology is taught across the curriculum from Year 7 to Year 13.
All students have timetabled ICT lessons at Key Stage 3 and follow the national teaching strategy, which develops skills and competence gained at junior school.
At KS4, ICT is optional and students can choose to study either GCSE ICT or OCR Nationals Level 2.
With successful completion of a KS4 course, students can progress on to the AS Level or OCR Nationals Level 3.
There are many extra curricular opportunities for students in ICT, which range from extra coursework sessions for exam students to drop in sessions. A full list is available from the Curriculum Leader for ICT.
