Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

The ICT curriculum reflects modern day society and aims to educate, inform and give pupils the skills to be prepared for our technology orientated world. Pupils explore how digital technology impacts on the lives of individuals, organisations and society. They develop an awareness of the risks that are inherent in using ICT and the features of safe, secure and responsible practice. Pupils also develop the practical skills to produce a whole range of digital products.

The course aims to be relevant, current and practical.

 At Key Stages 3 and 4 we follow the Edexcel GCSE ICT syllabus.
