Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)
Pupils start Year 7 with an E-Safety project, which includes health & safety issues with computers. Pupils then learn to write algorithms and create flowcharts using Flowol. Programming concepts are introduced and skills are developed using Scratch & Python. Game development using programs such as Fusion is popular among Key Stage 3 students. Data structures, data representation and study of types of computer systems form an integral part of the subject. Programming club run by Digital Leaders highlights their strengths of programming at higher levels.
