Curriculum Aims

At Sarah Bonnell School we aim to ensure that every student has the opportunity to learn and achieve in Computing. Students are taught a variety of skills in their Computing lessons which they will use throughout their lives in and out of school. During their Computing studies students are taught how to code using various programming languages. This in turns enables students to develop their computational thinking and develops their skills further in the subject.

Students have the latest computers in class as well as access to IPads. We aim to encourage students to become independent and confident learners. The digital world is constantly changing and we encourage our students to become producers of products and to further study computing once they leave school. As a department we hope to provide students with the best Computing, IT & Business experience.
