Computing

An Insight into Life

Girls learn skills such as problem-solving and abstraction. The subject of Computing leads to deep enquiry, such as what it means to think, and new insights into life itself.

The Computing Curriculum

Computing (Key Stage 3)

Years I - III (11-12 years) Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3 Computing is taught across the three cornerstones of the subject; Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS) and Digital Literacy (DL). The IT and DL strands see students learn how to use the technologies and software that they come in contact with across all of the school subjects and further afield as they move on through their education and career paths. In the CS strand students study how computers work, programming and game design using the Scratch and Python programming languages and Physical Computing using the Microbit and Raspberry Pi Computers.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with a team during the Raspberry Pi project where we developed a heart rate monitor. I felt such a sense of achievement, it was a really rewarding process.
