During 2017/18, our Year 11 pupils who selected Information and Communication Technology as an option choice will be finishing a legacy course in GCSE ICT, which they have been studying since the beginning of Year 10. This course will be discontinued from 2018/19 onwards as it has subsequently been replaced by GCSE Computer Science, a new specification which KS4 pupils in Year 9 and Year 10 are now studying.
The legacy GCSE ICT course provide pupils with the opportunity to:
- Learn about current and emerging digital technology and its impact on our lives
- Work with a range of tools and techniques
- Explore interactive digital products such as websites, computer games and databases.
