In Year 7 students will learn about how technology impacts society and how to safeguard themselves whilst using technology. Students also learn how to construct spreadsheets to model / forecast. This gives them the first learning blocks – data types and formulae which they will build on throughout their time in school. Students also start to learn how to code in a markup language to change elements on a webpage.

In Year 9 start with learning how computers think using pseudocode and how to troubleshoot code manually. They also learn about the efficiency of a variety of searching and sorting algorithms. These logical constructs lead inevitably to students learning to code in their second coding language python which can be used for a variety of applications such as artificial intelligence, web development and data science. After learning to safeguard themselves and their devices in Years 7 and 8 they learn how network systems are protected from threats before learning how networks are visualised and constructed.

Year 10 start by learning about the architecture of the Central Processing Unit, how memory operates and the function of secondary storage devices. The use of mathematics to calculate files sizes leads naturally onto how data is represented. While calculating how fast files download students will be naturally curious about how data travels. This is explored when students learn how networks are constructed, the role of network hardware and protocols. The impact of digital technology on the individual, society and ethical issues arising from increasingly capable network devices is then studied.

In Year 11 start by learning how computers think using pseudocode and how to troubleshoot code manually. They also learn about the efficiency of a variety of searching and sorting algorithms, how to use Boolean algebra, truth tables and trace tables. Students then learn about the types of programming language before a dedicated block of time devoted to programming in Python. Our aim to ensure that students have the practical skills to solve problems using pseudocode and Python.
