ICT

Key Stage 3

Students follow the National Curriculum for ICT.  They are given extra time in the timetable so that we can cover the KS3 work in just 2 years.
In Year 9 students take a level 1 or level 2 OCR National in ICT.  Again, they are given more than the normal time so that they can complete these qualifications in a year.

Key Stage 4

There are two ICT courses in Key Stage 4.  There is a Core Skills option where the aim is to reach ICT Functional Skills at level 2 and for more specialist interest, a GCSE in Computing.

Key Stage 5

AS Computing is offered, but this would normally be part time over two years.  For exceptional students Computing is available to A2.
