Computing is at the centre of teaching in Bishopstone.  We have a selection of desktops, tablets (iPads and Android) and many other forms of technology.

We enjoy a range of software from the core packages through to Scratch / Kodu, and even Augmented Reality! Hardware such as high-definition visualizers, a Green-screen studio, Lego robotics and MaKey MaKey technology interface kits help to extend the range of this exciting subject.

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
