Computer Science

Computer Science offers a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and possibly change the world.

At HCACP, we believe all students need to know and understand how to use computer systems - both hardware and software - safely. To do this we have curated a curriculum that offers both depth and breadth in knowledge over a variety of concepts to embed all students with a foundation that enables them to use, create, develop, communicate and analyse computer systems.

All students are encouraged to use and apply their knowledge to understand new and unfamiliar concepts. They should actively attempt to find solutions when problem-solving, using computational thinking. With social media and online gaming continuously growing and dominating our lives, it is extremely vital to provide our pupils with a wealth of knowledge they can link and relate to. Their day-to-day interactions and real-life scenarios will encourage them to take full advantage of this rich curriculum and make substantial positive progress while adding value to their cultural capital.

Our curriculum is designed to promote a positive perspective, to identify how the development of hardware and software are rapidly growing and changing life as we know it. Through computer science we aim to build students resilience through programming, encouraging them not to be afraid of failure and to have the confidence to try again.

Full details of the Computer Science curriculum intent, along with the long term curriculum plans are available to download from the bottom of the page.
