Welcome to ICT and iMedia

In ICT students will learn relevant skills and use programs in the Microsoft Office package (word processing, spreadsheets and databases). Students will also learn creative skills such as graphic design, web design, animation and video. The theory looks at the ‘online world’ and how we use technology in everyday life.



Key Stage 3

The ICT course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the iMedia course in Key Stage 4.

In year 7 we predominantly cover ICT skills. We build on students’ knowledge from primary school and aim to support all subjects in their use of ICT. Towards the end of the year we also cover visual programming.

In year 8 we focus completely on Computer Science. This year is designed to build students’ knowledge in order to access a further course of Computer Science at GCSE or A’Level, or the iMedia ICT/Creative Media course. There is a significant amount of theory based work as well as programming in a text based language.
