Ercall Wood Academy

Excellence through challenge and initiative

Information Communication Technology

The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people in England with the skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programmes of study for computing, students will learn how computers and computer systems work. They will design, write, debug and test programmes, they will develop their ideas using technology and create a range of digital artefacts.
At Ercall Wood we cater for all these needs by developing a curriculum that allows students to explore computing, practise skills and develop ideas about how to use computers and ICT to enhance their social, economic, cultural and moral well being. Through computational thinking, students start to think like a computer scientist. Understanding how computers work and being able to use them creatively gives pupils the power to shape the world around them.
