Computing

Did you know that the top ten jobs currently in demand didn’t exist in 2004?

Here at Prospect School we are preparing our students for jobs that don’t yet exist, to use technology that hasn’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don't yet know are problems!

In order to address these needs we develop our pupils to be:

  • Independent enquirers
  • Creative thinkers
  • Reflective learners
  • Team workers
  • Self-managers

The Computing Department are made up of a team of very passionate computing teachers.  Our aim is to encourage pupils to have the same level of passion for new technology as we have.

Our philosophy is to equip them with the creativity, imagination and skills to be able to lead the next generation of technology.

We are very dedicated to ensuring that all of the pupils in our classes make progress regardless of background or experience.  We implement a number of teaching and learning strategies to ensure that every student has access to our curriculum and performs to their very best.

The Department regularly run competitions that are designed to enrich and enhance the curriculum, challenge the students in innovative and engaging ways and give them access to professionals working in the real-world.  We believe that this type of interaction benefits them in both study skills and qualification achievement.

The department is continually developing and evolving.  We are always seeking for different ways in which we can use new technology to improve the way that our pupils learn and interact with ICT.
