KS4 - Computer Science

KS4 Computer Science

A combination of teacher led delivery, a module-based approach, independent research and programming projects, student demonstration, teamwork, extension and extra-curricular activities, competition and presentation activities, we aim to support learners to find their passion for learning and computing and to complement the investigative, problem solving and employability skills that they are developing in other subject areas.  KS4 students are taught to do the following;

  • Understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of Computer Science, including abstraction, decomposition, logic, algorithms and data representation

  • Analyse problems in computational terms through practical experience of solving such problems, including designing, writing and debugging programs

  • Think creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically

  • Understand the components that make up digital systems, and how they communicate with one another and with other systems

  • understand the impacts of digital technology to the individual and to wider society

  • Apply mathematical skills relevant to Computer Science.
