Year 9 – Foundation course consolidating and extending knowledge gained in year7-8 to include the development of programming skills, knowledge of hard and software.

Throughout year 10 and 11 students will study six theory units based on computer programming and software development:

1: Algorithms

2: Programming Techniques

3: Producing Robust Programs

4: Computational Logic

5: Translators and Facilities of Language

6: Data Representation.

Throughout year 10 and year 11 students will study 8 theory units based on computer systems:

1: Systems Architecture

2: Memory

3: Storage

4: Wired and Wireless Networks

5: Network Topologies and Protocols

6: System Security

7: System Software

8: Ethical, Legal, Cultural and Environmental

Towards the end of year 10 students are given a coursework task to complete which involves individual work on designing, developing and testing a computer program to solve a given scenario.

Students are assessed through end of unit tests after each theory unit, we also have an internal exam at the end of year 10 and a mock exam in January of year 11.
