Our Curriculum for 2021/22

Each of our KS3 courses covers a range of topics each year allowing our learners to access the full range of computing – not just programming! (although there is programming included every year)

Students can enrol at any time, but we strongly recommend starting at the beginning of a half term as the course is divided into topics.
