Computing at Hillbrook

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.
