ICT

Key Stage 3

  • Exam questions which allow you to explain your understanding of skills used.
  • Working with Sixth Form helpers during lessons or arranging a one to one session at lunchtime.
  • Independent tasks that allow you the freedom to complete work in the most imaginative way possible and so that you can direct your own learning and pose questions for yourself.
  • Attend a lunchtime club such as Redstone or Kodu club to broaden your skills and maximise your enjoyment of ICT.

Key stage 4 

  • Offer mentoring and support to KS3 pupils*
  • Develop a programme to allow other pupils to access new software or concepts.
  • Six mark questions – these are longer answer questions at GCSE that involve skill in both ICT knowledge and also English writing as you get marked on SPAG too!
  • The promotion of studying ICT and Computer Science at A Level and even Degree Level.
  • Using ICT skills in all other subjects, as this will help you apply your subject knowledge and make any work look professional and clear.

Key Stage 5 

This stage of your education is preparing you for the world of work or further education. With this in mind the way that you approach the course should be different.

  • Independent Work – you should be taking ownership of your own learning, reading around the subject and doing extra work at home making sure you fully understand concepts
  • Becoming a Sixth Form Mentor – come along lower school lessons and share your understanding. A programme can be tailored to your available study periods.

Here are some of the extra-curricular activities we offer in ICT, why not get involved?

  • Revision session
  • Catch up sessions
  • Lunchtime support and development – a perfect opportunity to work as a mentor during these sessions
  • Little Kan computer club
