“Could we ever build a computer that knows everything?”

Computers are now part of everyday life and, for most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill that all pupils must learn if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in the digital world.
Our department prides itself on teaching engaging and challenging lessons that motivate our students to become self-motivated learners who can use their skills to aid their learning both in and out of school.
Learning skills such as personal organisation, time management, self-reflection and the ability to make mistakes and learn from them are given particular emphasis. Nobody knows which button to press all the time, and it’s how we cope when we don’t know what to do that really shows how good a learner we are.
