Year 7

In Year 7 Computer Science students study the ins and outs of computer systems.

Students learn the basics of programming as well as developing a fundamental knowledge of the principles of computational thinking. Lessons are a mix of computer based work, class discussion and ‘physical computing’. These diverse learning methods bring the subject to life and make it memorable for them.

Year 10

OCR GCSE in Computer Science is engaging and practical, encouraging creativity and problem solving. It encourages students to develop their understanding and application of the core concepts in computer science. Students also analyse problems in computational terms and devise creative solutions by designing, writing, testing and evaluating programs. They will develop valuable thinking and programming skills that are extremely attractive in the modern workplace. 

There’s more to Computer Science than simply programming. Computer Science is the study of how computer systems work, how they are constructed and programmed. It consists of a body of knowledge, a set of techniques/methods for solving problems, as well as practical programming skills. What this means is that a course in Computer Science has to cover a lot of theory teaching, as well as plenty of practical problem solving and programming as they move into Year 11.
