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:
Pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
To use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.
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!

Weebly – Website design
Scratch – Programming
