Computer Science is at the heart of Corby Technical School’s technical ethos and allows students to develop their problem solving skills as well as developing a solid understanding of computer systems and software development.
We teach Computer Science to ensure that students are prepared for the technical world that they are about to engage with. A broad curriculum ensures that pupils are equipped with key ICT skills which can be utilised in both academic and vocational pursuits, as well as developing skills required to design and build software and understand and utilise key computer hardware.
Computer Science builds resilience to failure as well as forming the confidence to solve difficult problems. This ensures that students are readied for the rigour of our ever expanding technology-driven world.
At KS4, students study OCR (J276) GCSE Computer Science.
At KS5, students study OCR (H446) A Level Computer Science.
