ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and Computer Science are two disciplines that involve the use of computers in modern society. ICT focuses on the use of programs and how software solutions are developed and deployed in business. Computing investigates how the programs we use are created. It also examines how computer hardware and software work on a logical and electronic level.
The ICT and Computer Science course at Years 7 and 8 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the OCR Computer Science (9-1) and Cambridge Nationals in ICT course in Years 9 to 11.
