Computing

At Hillbrook we continually invest in new technology and software to ensure we provide a challenging and stimulating experience for all of our learners.

The computing curriculum has three main areas:

Computer Science -pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

Information Technology -to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

Digital Literacy -to be able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.

Some of the software we use be downloaded for free!
