IT and Computing

IT and Computing Leader: Miss Susan Stickley

We aim for pupils to leave us with high levels of digital literacy as a strong basis for supporting pupils' learning and we begin to prepare them for the workplace. We aim to inspire and motivate pupils through the creative use of the technologies available through cross-curricular work and dedicated Computing lessons.
