ICT & Business

Facilities

The department is made up of 6 classrooms which are fully equipped with the latest interactive whiteboards and enough computers so every student has their own computer in every lesson.  There is also a laptop trolley available.  The latest software has been uploaded onto every computer to allow all students to access the tools they require to expand their skills and understanding of computer software, programming and technology in every lesson.

Support

The ICT classrooms are available within the department at lunch time and after school to allow students to gain additional help and guidance and also continue with their practical work.  We also encourage all students to explore and develop their ICT and computing skills at home.  There are also extra revision clinics available for all students before they sit their GCSE and Advanced Level examinations.

Extra-Curricular

There are a wide range of extra-curricular sessions offered at lunchtime and after school for students.  Students have the chance to take part in The Real Business Challenge run by Coca Cola and in the Sixth Form, students also have the opportunity visit the ICT and Business Live! Conferences at Disneyland Paris where they investigate the latest developments in ICT and Business.

The ICT, Computing and Business department are a high achieving and successful department.  We believe that every student should be prepared to function in the ever developing digital world.  The courses offered at GCSE and A Level provide students with the skills and understanding to unlock various opportunities in higher education, leading to future career success.
