Mission And Vision

Our mission is to accompany young adolescents on their educational journey, to help them make thoughtful actions and informed decisions, though the provision of quality education, underpinned with appropriate pedagogy, laying emphasis on ethics, the development of appropriate social and technological skills, within a framework of academic excellence.
 
Our vision is that our learners become Confident in using technology to help themselves and their peers learn,  be Responsible for their own learning while being respectful of others,  Innovative in their approach to meet challenges of a changing global society,   Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.
 

Why Choose Cambridge International AS And A Level Computer Science?

Cambridge International AS Level and A Level Computer Science are accepted by universities and employers as proof of essential knowledge and ability.

This syllabus is designed to give greater flexibility both to teachers and to learners. It is envisaged that learners will use the skills and knowledge of computer science acquired through this course in one of three ways:

  • to provide a general understanding and perspective of the development of computer technology and systems, which will inform their decisions and support their participation in an increasingly technologically dependent society
  • to provide the necessary skills and knowledge to seek employment in areas that use computer science
  • to develop their knowledge and understanding of computer science through entry to higher education, where this  qualification will provide a useful foundation for further study of computer science or more specialist aspects of computer science.
 

Prior learning

Candidates beginning this course are not expected to have studied computer science or ICT previously.

 

Progression

Cambridge International A Level Computer Science provides a suitable foundation for the study of computer science or related courses in higher education. Equally, it is suitable for candidates intending to pursue careers or further study in computer science or ICT, or as part of a course of general education.

 

Cambridge International AS Level Computer Science constitutes the first half of the Cambridge International A Level course in computer science and provides a suitable foundation for the study of computer science at Cambridge International A Level and then for related courses in higher education. Depending on local university entrance requirements, it may permit or assist progression directly to university courses in Computer Science or some other subjects. It is also suitable for candidates intending to pursue careers or further study in computer science or ICT, or as part of a course of general education. 
 

Aims And Objectives

The aims of a course based on Cambridge International AS and AL Computer Science, whether leading to an AS or A Level qualification are:

  • to develop computational thinking
  • to develop an understanding of the main principles of solving problems using computers
  • to develop an understanding that every computer system is made up of subsystems, which in turn consist of further subsystems
  • to develop an understanding of the component parts of computer systems and how they interrelate, including software, data, hardware, communications and people
  • to acquire the skills necessary to apply this understanding to develop computer-based solutions to problems.

 

Computer science is the study of the foundational principles and practices of computation and computational thinking and their application in the design and development of computer systems.

This syllabus aims to encourage the development of computational thinking, that is thinking about what can be computed and how by the use of abstraction and decomposition. It includes consideration of the data required. Learning computational thinking involves learning to program, by writing computer code, because this is the means by which computational thinking is expressed. 

Why Choose Cambridge International O Level Computer Science?

The Cambridge O Level Computer Science syllabus enables learners to develop an interest in computing and gain confidence in computational thinking and programming. Cambridge O Level Computer Science is an ideal foundation for further study at Cambridge International A Level, and the skills learnt can also be used in other areas of study and in everyday life.
 
Prior learning
Candidates beginning this course are not expected to have studied computer science or IT previously.
 
Progression
Cambridge O Level Certificates are general qualifications that enable candidates either to progress directly to employment, or to proceed to further qualifications.
 

Aims And Objectives

The Cambridge O Level Computer Science syllabus aims are to:

  • develop computational thinking
  • develop an understanding of the main principles of solving problems using computers
  • develop understanding that every computer system is made up of sub-systems, which in turn consist of further sub-systems
  • develop an understanding of the component parts of computer systems and how they interrelate, including software, data, hardware, communications and people
  • acquire the skills necessary to apply this understanding to develop computer-based solutions to problems using a high-level programming language.

Specialist Rooms

The Computer Department has two Computer Labs, where Computer Room One is the main Lab, it accommodates for lower form classes while Computer Room Two is smaller in size and used mostly for Upper form classes.  Both Labs are equipped with personal computers, printers and Internet Access. ​
