We follow the recommended English programme of study from the Department of Education.

Computing is made up of 3 subjects:

Digital Literacy 
(word-processing, presenting, analysing data and media)

Information Technology
(searching, e-safety and  networking)

Computer Science
(understanding algorithms and programming)

 

Listed below are some of our favourite computing websites:

BBC bitesize
Great for explanations, videos and games on the three key subjects.
