Consisting of two modern computer suites, each classroom has approximately 24 networked computers, allowing controlled safe access to the internet for all pupils. Access to this network is available during the lessons and activities, allowing for free study or class work to be completed.
Site wide wireless support allows students to access the internet through the safety of the school firewall on their own computer equipment, alongside equipment that is provided by the school.
Each year a number of pupils take the opportunity to further their skills through studying a computing/IT course at their chosen University. Whether this be Business Computing, Business Information Technology or Computing Studies, we fully believe that the computing skills pupils have gained in the Computer Science Department can provide a stepping stone in taking their skills set further at higher education.
