Cross curricular ICT is integrated within classroom experiences across all subject areas. The delivery and assessment of ICT is supported by specialist classes at Key Stage 3.
As a discrete subject we offer Computing at GCSE and A Level through the OCR examination board. We also offer ICT at GCSE and A Level through the CCEA examination board.
