Key Stage 4 builds upon strengthening their practical programming skills and students also learn the fundamentals of Cyber Security, and Computer Networks becoming familiar with network types, topologies and protocols.


Students will also learn to understand the inner workings of a computer systems including its architecture, the classification of hardware and software and memory and storage.

Students will demonstrate their computer science capability by applying analytical, problem-solving and computational thinking skills as they complete the 20 hour timed Non-exam Assessment (NEA) under controlled assessment conditions.


This programme of study allows students the opportunity to study aspects of information technology and computer science at greater depth to allow them to progress into further levels of study or to a professional career.
