Curriculum >> Key Stage 4 >> ICT
Department vision: To develop computing skills for life and programmers of the future.
IGCSE ICT or IGCSE Computer Science is compulsory in KS4.
Information Communication Technology
The Information Communication Technology syllabus encourages learners to develop lifelong skills, which will be useful to them in their work across the curriculum and prepare them for future employment. They will develop understanding of the implications of technology in society, including social, economic and ethical uses and awareness of the ways ICT can help in home, learning and work environments.
This course will allow students to develop their programming skills and give them a greater understanding to the world of computers; not just how they work but also how they are made. Studying Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science will help learners appreciate current and emerging computing technologies, the benefits of their use and recognise their potential risks. It will also help learners develop an interest in computing and gain confidence in computational thinking.
