Computer Science

 

Welcome to the Computer Science department.
 
We follow the OCR GCSE 9-1 computer science course. This course is assessed with two 90 minute exams (80%) and one Non Exam Assessment (NEA) (20%) This non exam assessment asks students to craft their own programme and it also assessed with a write-up detailing the planning, testing and evaluation of the completed programme. 
 
There is a huge range of resouces available to help students get to grips with computer science though we recommend the following:
