The Computing and Enterprise Department offers a broad and balanced curriculum across the full 11-18 age range, with an emphasis on vocational, employability and enterprise skills.
Our curriculum offer is as follows:
Years 7, 8 and 9 – Computing and Enterprise
The Middle Years Programme (MYP), aims to embed IT skills necessary for learners to take their place in a modern society.
Set in a context of improving society, students learn how to do programming through Scratch and Python as well as touching on other programming languages.
In addition they develop their implicit skills with documents, spreadsheets, slides and website development using Google Apps.
The National Enterprise Challenge is a feature in Year 9, giving students a chance to pit their skills against the rest of the country to develop a new product and market it effectively.
The Duke of York Award is run in parallel to this course, giving students an opportunity to gain recognition for their skills in a range of technology.
