ICT

Aims & Ethos

A key focus for ICT is to prepare pupils for the technological world in which we live. We aim to give them the capability in ICT to become increasingly independent users of ICT tools and information sources.  Pupils will be  focused, efficient and rigorous in their use of ICT and will increasingly work on a range of complex tasks. They will develop their skills using industry recognised software.

Pupils will develop an awareness of how ICT can help their work in other subjects and in everyday life. At the same time they will gain the ability to judge which software to use and whether ICT is appropriate for their task.

The ICT Department is a very successful and pupils enjoy their lessons within a positive and safe learning environment.  Pupils are actively encourage to be aware of security issues concerning computer use and to apply safe practise in their use of the Internet.
