Key Stage 3 pupils in the Computing and Business department follow a balanced curriculum, which reflects the transition of computing in the new National Curriculum yet still encompasses the digital literacy skills required to succeed in a digital world. The schemes of work are challenging whilst encouraging creativity and are complemented with homework activities which stretch and recall learning outside the classroom. At the core of the Computing curriculum is Computer Science, in which pupils are taught the principles of data and computation, how digital systems work and how to program in a range of languages such as Python and HTML.
The Computing and Business department at Broadoak School is committed to helping pupils achieve and we pride ourselves on being one of the most consistently strong subject areas in the school with 100% of pupils passing at grade C or above for the past 3 years in courses such as BTEC Business, GCSE ICT and a Certificate in Digital Applications. In addition to our commitment to excellent results, we encourage pupils to develop an enjoyment for the digital and business world to ensure a comprehensive development for a future in specialist industries. The department utilise a range of employer interactivity within the schemes of learning of two new specialist vocational courses; BTEC Enterprise and BTEC Digital Information Technology.
