ICT & Computing KS3

 

The KS3 Curriculum has been developed to forge the skills linked to both Computer Science and ICT.  There is a focus on building skills and experience in using Computing to manage data and communicate effectively.  Then allow students to experience how to build their own computer programs whilst tightening their logic and problem-solving skills.  Technology and device interconnectivity has become a key part of our society, understanding the principles of how this is achieved is embedded across the key stage.
