KEY STAGE 3

All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 study Computing for 1 hour per week. Students use a variety of software during their assignment based tasks including Spreadsheets, Computer Programming applications, Databases, Web publishing and Web browsers. The assessment of completed assignments is based on how well students have used their skills to find things out, develop ideas, make things happen and exchange and share information.

Students are encouraged to be independent learners by completing Extended Project Homework Tasks which are accessible through the school network. These tasks allow students to research and develop creative pieces of work that display their potential, for example through the creation of videos, brochures and multimedia presentations
