Year 7, 8 and 9

The world of technology is always changing, therefore our aim is to develop students into forward thinking, skilful adults. At Moor Park throughout Years 7-9 every student will develop an understanding of a wide range of computing and ICT applications. Students will use a wide range of resources, including the latest software to enable them cope with the demands of an increasingly digital world. Through exciting, inclusive and passionate approaches we aim to prepare students for global future careers.

Students will also gain knowledge and understanding of Business and Enterprise. Enterprise capabilities will be explored through numerous charitable events, such as Micro-Tyco. In which participants have a month to turn one pound into more using creative and innovative ideas. Our aim is to develop skills such as risk taking, resilience and leadership in order to prepare students for the competitive world of work.

Year 10 and 11

The course aims to deliver a real, in-depth understanding of how computer technology works using a number of practical strategies. Through engaging and interactive teaching we ensure that students develop an insight into what goes on ‘behind the scenes’, including computer programming, which many students find absorbing. Using this practical approach we develop many skills such as critical thinking, analysis and problem-solving skills, which can be transferred to further learning and everyday life. Students who want to go on to higher study and employment in the field of computer science will find that this course provides a superb stepping stone.
