Business, Computing & ICT

In the Business, Computing and ICT faculty we provide students with essential skills and knowledge to prepare them for the next step in their lives, be that further education, training or work. We provide a broad and accessible curriculum with engaging, knowledge-rich subject content in the form of an 11-19 ICT and Computing curriculum and a 14-19 Business curriculum. Our enthusiastic team of dedicated teaching staff are driven to provide students with the transferable skills they will need to be successful in this ever-developing technological world we live in.

Our subjects naturally lend themselves to supporting students in their other studies on the campus, including many links to numeracy and literacy.  Our curriculum has been developed to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate creativity, zest as well as independence through project work.
