In the Computing and Creative Imedia department, we embrace a forward-thinking approach and focus on fostering success for all. Our vision as a department is to empower students to become articulate, knowledgeable, skilled, and inquisitive learners. We aim to instill practical skills applicable to real-life situations and encourage independent, creative, innovative, and critical thinking. Students will stay abreast of technological advancements to prepare them for the social and economic climate, allowing them to participate in and contribute to the global world.
We will achieve this by providing an enriched curriculum, which includes:
- Challenge: every lesson should be challenging, allowing students to extend their learning.
- Enjoyment: students will experience a range of teaching activities to ensure engagement and interest; for example, giving students choices through activities to suit their needs, use of technology, relating topics that will covered to their lives, and finally, lessons will be interactive so students are fully participating in all lessons.
- A positive environment to learn in: all students will have an environment, which will include high expectations of all students, disruption-free learning, and meaningful classwork and home learning.
Key Stage Three
Year 7 will embark on an exciting journey and will dive into an array of captivating IT topics and hone essential skills. They’ll seamlessly navigate our Google platform, master communication through emails, and deepen their understanding of computers, building upon KS2 foundations. The adventure extends to exploring video editing software and delving into the profound impact technology has on our daily lives. Our students will even get hands-on with BBC Microbits, unlock the world of programming, and take a step beyond blocks with Small Basic, transitioning to crafting code in text windows. Join us in fostering a love for technology and unlocking the potential of Key Stage 3!
