A Level Computer Science


Computer Science is a practical subject where students can apply the academic principles learned in the classroom to real-world systems.  It is an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, that can look at the natural world through a digital prism.

Computer Science values computational thinking, helping students to develop the skills to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine.

These are the concepts that lie at the heart of Computer Science.  They will be the best preparation for students who want to go on to study Computer Science at a higher level and will also provide a good grounding for other subject areas that require computational thinking and analytical skills such as mathematics and science.

Top university progression and then on to a range of professions from software engineering to project management.
