Students will be able to choose Computer Science and/or a Digital Applications qualification, as they select which options they wish to pursue at GCSE level.
There is a distinct focus between the Computer Science and a Digital Applications qualifications.
Digital Applications involve using different applications to plan and produce a range of products, typically used in a work-place environment.
Computer Science includes understanding how computers work: programming techniques, computational thinking, software and hardware and representation of data in computer systems.
Revision guides or web-based resources are available and we advertise these to students and parents via a letter.
