Computer Science

Students in Year 7 and Year 8 will have one hour a week to study Computer Science.  Students can then opt to continue studying Computer Science in Years 9, 10 and 11 for three hours per week.  All the content covered during Key Stage 3 will support the content that needs to be covered at GCSE level. KS4 overview.

Students will cover a variety of topics which can be found in the Long Term Plan and have the opportunity to improve their grades further by completing the Computing Extension Activities.  Students will need to achieve the lowest Ninja Rank first (starting with green) and work their way up.  Students who provide evidence for all three tasks will be provided with a badge and certificate at the end of each half term.

Homework will be set once a week which will be e-mailed directly to a student’s academy e-mail address.  Students can access their e-mail (add hyperlink here to access the academies e-mail login) from any web enabled device (this includes mobile phones).

Students can access their work from home and will also have access to all classroom resources (e.g. PowerPoints and worksheets).  All Students will have been given a letter with instructions on how to login.
