Information Communication Technology
Empowering the Internet Generation
At Stephenson Academy, our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which will equip students to use computational thinking and creativity to give them the skills which will allow them to thrive in the modern world; in both their personal and working life. Students will gain key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy.
The objectives within each topic support the development of learning across both key stages, ensuring a solid foundation in education and beyond. Our approach to teaching ICT results in a fun, engaging and challenging classroom experience. Students will learn programming, understand how digital systems work, and how to use computers to store, retrieve and send information. Students learn to evaluate digital content and how to use technology safely and respectfully. All topics will provide the basis to securing a BTEC qualification as an IT user at Key Stage 4.
