IT and Computing Key Stage 3

Over Key Stage 3, we look to engage our students with a variety of exciting topics. We pride ourselves on offering opportunities to develop students’ computational thinking, ability to apply and evaluate information technology to solve problems as well as gaining practical experience of writing computer programs. In the first two years, students will use both visual and text-based programming languages, complete activities that model business practice and develop skills in animation and video editing.

We look to embed IT skills and routines and develop concepts of computing, computational thinking and problem solving  by covering the following topics:

  • IT Acceptable use and safe practices
  • IT working practices
  • Desktop publishing
  • Hardware and Software
  • Algorithm Design
  • BBC Micro:bit Programming
  • Code for Life Programming
  • Spreadsheet modelling
  • Database design
  • Video Editing
  • Animation
  • Web Graphics
  • Web page design
