“Everybody should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.”
At Harris Academy Tottenham, all KS3 pupils are taught Computing once a week in a discrete, single lesson in Year 7, 8 and 9. At KS4 pupils can elect to study the OCR Computer Science GCSE. In the Sixth Form the OCR Computer Science A-Level is also a popular choice.
Our pupils are equipped with the skills and knowledge to face the challenges of modern technology, to advance their studies in the subject to a higher level or to seek employment at a professional level.
The Computing curriculum provides our pupils with the opportunity to study aspects of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Computer Science (CS). They become digitally competent: able to use a range of computing technologies with confidence, to develop their ideas and to express themselves through it.
Pupils are also enabled to harness the power of programming and computational thinking to be successful, responsible, innovative and effective thinkers and problem-solvers. Our pupils utilise their skills to advance their study of this and other subjects, become suitable for the future workplace and are ready to actively partake and change the digital world.
