WHAT IS OUR ETHOS?
Our aim in Computing is two-fold: to inspire students – as pioneers of the future; and to nurture a love of this subject. As computer programs pervade every aspect of our lives, our society needs computer scientists – passionate individuals to develop computing in every type of industry. In practice, this means that students need to see the wider picture and to relate their learning to the real world and possible career paths. They need to become digitally literate, and digitally resilient. We will achieve this by teaching them to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of Computing. They will acquire this knowledge by learning key facts and words, by analysing problems in computational terms, and through repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve problems. Students will learn to think creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically to evaluate and apply information technology (including unfamiliar technologies). Students will become competent and creative users of computing in both home and work contexts
