Computing is a rich and deep discipline in its own right, like Physics and Mathematics. It explores foundational principles and ideas, rather than training students in skills related to particular software. Computing’s aspects of design, theory and experimentation are drawn from Engineering, Maths and Science respectively. Computing involves concepts and questions that have the potential to change how we view the world.
A level is the more traditionally academic route for students who have already achieved a GCSE in Computer Science. However, we now offer the BTEC course which is a more vocational route for students. Both courses will allow students to progress at University Level or enter the world of work. Further details about the BTEC course can be found on the Computing Btec subject page.
