Computing at Upton

Ten years from now our school leavers may well be entering career pathways that currently do not exist. Many of these new opportunities will be within computing and technology

 

 

 

 

 

Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

At Upton we employ a specialist computing teacher to teach this subject across all age groups. This allows an in-depth focus that benefits the knowledge and skills of our pupils.
