Computing Curriculum Intent Statement



A high-quality Computing education should promote computational thinking and digital creativity to support pupils developing a love of discovery and digital creativity. We aim for our students to develop the foundations to enable them to be discerning, life-long learners in a fast-moving landscape. We want the students to assess the effects of this sometimes-disruptive influence and make changes based on a solid knowledge of the technology sector.



A high-quality computing education equips students to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Information Technology ensures that students become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace. As active, aware and informed participants in the digital world.



The vision for the department is to provide a balanced and informed curriculum across all key stages in the school. The aim is for the students to be active and engaged users and creators in the emerging digital economy. The curriculum is designed to allow students to have access to both Computer Science and Information Technology and make informed choices on how they pursue the subjects as they continue their learning journey through the school. The vision is for the students to learn transferable skills that can be applied to legacy subjects to speed up the research and analysis required to pinpoint key information to further progress in these subjects.

We also aim for the students to leave their education here with the skill set to keep their knowledge up to date in the ever-changing digital technology landscape.



Our curriculum is designed to educate pupils on core skills that can be applied to a variety of tasks, software and situations, whilst developing a lifelong love of computing. Whether this love is focused on robotics, coding, gaming, animation or other aspects of Computing we are able and will support our students pursue their passions. Through the provision of scaffolding and support we enable our students to become innovative and successful members of the world around them.
