Students can choose between A Level Computer Science and a Cambridge Technicals in IT.
A Level Computer Science
Why study Computer Science?
Computer Science will above all else be relevant to the modern and changing world of Computing. Computer Science is a practical subject where learners can apply the academic principles learned in the classroom to real world systems. It is an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, and can look at the natural world through a digital prism. A Level in Computer Science will value computational thinking, helping learners to develop the skills to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence.
Students will develop an ability to analyse, critically evaluate and make decisions. The project approach is a vital component of ‘post-school’ life and is of particular relevance to Further Education, Higher Education and the workplace.
Cambridge Technicals in IT
Why study Cambridge Technicals in IT?
IT is at the heart of everyday life, at work, home and in our leisure time: from computer graphics and control systems, to communications and problem solving, IT has an ever-increasing role to play. The Cambridge Technicals in IT draw this together through a wide range of units such as computer networks, mobile technology and computer systems. It’s an ideal foundation for students entering the workplace, The Cambridge Technicals in IT provide students with a theoretical background reinforced with practical skills that transfer into the modern workplace.
