Computing

"Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid. Human beings are incredibily slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination" - Albert Einstein

Vision Statement

At the Royal Harbour Academy, we believe that our students should have the opportunity to follow an IT and computing curriculum that prepares them for life in a modern world and take advantage of the ever-increasing demand for IT Professionals.
Having strong IT skills enables students to engage with the modern workplace, while Computer Science skills enables students to take an active part in the design, development and creation of new technologies to be used beyond being a consumer of technology.
We provide a broad range of skills and experiences at KS3, which are then further developed as students enter KS4 and then extended to KS5.
Students have the opportunity to Study Digital information Technologies, which allows students to acquire technical knowledge and technical skills through vocational contexts by studying the knowledge, understanding and skills, related to data management, data interpretation, data presentation and data protection as part of their Key Stage 4 learning.
Students can choose to Study Computer Science at GCSE where they will go on to develop key problem solving skills useful in a range of disciplines as well as the coding and software development skills that will give them an opportunity to work or for further study in the developing area seen to be key in the modern world.

Curriculum Overview

We provide a broad range of skills and experiences at KS3, which are then further developed as students enter KS4 and then extended to KS5.

Cultural Capital

Cultural capital is at the heart of our curriculum. From year 7 pupils work alongside the MYP and explore new technologies while learning about the world around them and the impact they can have on it. Our curriculum then continues to explore roles and responsibilities in the industry and the financial rewards that come with the different job roles. Programming is a fundamental skill to be a software engineer, however the soft skills that students learn will prepare them for life outside of an IT field. Logic, problem solving and decomposition are all transferable skills and enhances our students cultural capital.
