    We have a few different ways of tackling "Computing" as a school.

    We use a mixture of the Technology standards and the Digital Technology standards to offer two courses. Both of these are full year courses, firstly Games Design and also a Print/Web Design course.

    We have also created a workshop based subject (with a class set of netbooks) that we have called Digital Engineering. This course consists of a mix of three strands from the Digital Technology Curriculum. Electronics/Networks/Programming. 


    Lastly we still offer a traditional “Computing” course offering unit standards. This course has its place at the moment but will eventually be phased out.


    As an observation. The Games Design course and the subject Digital Engineering has over a 90% take up by boys.
