ICT and Computing

All boys from Reception onwards take part in specialist ICT and computing lessons in the School's fully equipped ICT suite.  Every classroom features an interactive SMART Board to enhance our teaching and learning and laptops are available for use in other subject lessons.

Our ICT and computing curriculum ensures that pupils leave the School with an in depth knowledge of all Microsoft Office software, along with a wide range of other software packages such as Serif and Yenka.  Additionally, boys learn a range of other skills, such as coding using ScratchKodu and Python. Digital literacy is a strand which runs through all our teaching along, with specific lessons on e-safety and how to make the best use of the Internet.

Many exercises are presented by way of a game or are project based, giving pupils the opportunity to design, plan, organise and implement an entire task themselves.
