Key Stage 3

Within Key Stage 3 students study a range of programmes in preparation for them choosing either ICT or Computing as their option subject. It is important to recognise that this is a crucial stage of student’s learning, one which can allow for firm foundations going into Key Stage 4.
Students will learn fundamental skills with ICT applications that are part of the Microsoft Office package. These skills can then be used in subsequent years and can be used cross-curricular. These skills will help prepare students for the ICT qualification offered at key stage 4.
