At Congleton High School, we intend to prepare our learners for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever-changing digital world. Knowledge and understanding of ICT is of increasing importance for children’s future both at home and for employment.

Our ICT provision is well-resourced, with students having good access to fully-equipped ICT suites. ICT courses are popular choices at Key Stage 4 and 5 and the department has a good track record of success.

Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology.

Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school. The department organises a wealth of enrichment and extracurricular activities, including a Google Sketch-up club and ‘How to make your own computer game’ club.

You will find below an overview of our ICT curriculum and presentations highlighting the many careers opened up by studying the subject.
