“Every girl deserves to take part in creating the technology that will change our world, and change who runs it.”
Malala Yousafzai

Our Philosophy
The department believes that all students need to be ICT literate to successfully navigate the modern world. We want them to move away from using technology as an entertainment medium and allow them to develop the skills to harness its creative and business related capabilities. With modern day innovations stemming from Computer Science we also endeavour to give them an understanding of this challenging discipline through a range of programming and problem solving activities. Our aim is not just to prepare them for today’s world but gives them the skills required to adapt to the needs of tomorrow.

What we expect from our students
We expect our students to come to lessons with a positive attitude and be prepared to persevere when presented with challenges. They are encouraged to develop their own competency at a computer but also develop collaborative relationships with each other to deepen their knowledge and skills. They will be expected to keep their files organised and take responsibility for their learning and e-safety inside and outside of lessons.
