Melksham Oak Learning & Education

Computer Science

We live in a world where computer science and ICT are fundamental to most activities, education, and employment. Computer science gives learners a real, in-depth understanding of how computer technology works.

ICT is an exciting and innovative way to provide lifelong learners with global access to information, learning, and support. It is a fusion of computer-based technology and communication. The social, moral, ethical, legal, and safe use of ICT are integral parts of the curriculum at all key stages.

Computer science provides excellent preparation for students who want to study or work in areas where these skills are applied to technical problems, including engineering, financial, science, medicine, and resource management. Throughout our schemes of work, students are encouraged to develop their collaborative, creative, and logical problem-solving skills. Development of critical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving skills is promoted through the study of computer programming, giving learners a fun and interesting way to develop skills which can be transferred to other subjects and applied in day-to-day life.

As a department, we aim to prepare students to be confident and competent users of technology, developing the skills to use computers in a variety of contexts, including problem solving and learning independently.
