ICT stands for information and communication technology.
As of September 2014, Year 7 students study ICT/Computing as a discrete subject and across the curriculum. In years 8 and 9 they learn ICT/Computing through using it in all subjects across the curriculum. This strategy is designed to ensure that relevant use of IT supports learning in all areas. Students use a wide range of software, both standard Office products and "cutting edge" software including geographical information systems and a range of exciting web technologies. Assessment is carried out via both specialist teachers and staff who deliver the ICT/Computing curriculum via their subject. We are currently trialling a new assessment booklet - see example of the year 7 one attached below.
