Computer Science

Head of Department: Miss R Lees-Radford 
Email: becky.lees-radford@destafford.org.uk  

The Computer Science department allows students to study Computer Science to GCSE level. The Computer Science GCSE provides excellent progression to 'A' level Computer Science, vocational courses and on to degree level courses in the areas of Computing, Engineering and Science. It will give you a solid grounding to study any industry standard IT. The course provides the knowledge, skills and understanding that a growing number of employers are demanding. We have a three year Key Stage 4 curriculum, details of which are included below:

Year 9

The purpose of Year 9 is to provide you with a good knowledge of multiple programming languages. We will be looking at advanced game design in Kodu, advanced programming in Scratch, Python, JavaScript and AppInventor (a tool used to create Apps)

This programming will be underpinned by a core of theoretical knowledge, including: Algorithms, programming techniques, Producing robust programs, Computational logic and Translators and facilities of languages

Year 10

Year 10 is focussed on completing the remaining theoretical elements of the GCSE Computer   Science course. This will include the following topics:

  • Systems Architecture, Memory & Storage
  • Wired and wireless networks, Network topologies, protocols and layers & System Security
  • System software
  • Ethical, legal, cultural and environmental concerns
  • Data representation

Year 11

Year 11 will see you utilise the programing skills and knowledge that you have acquired to     complete a number of different programming problems. This will lead up to the completion of your Controlled Assessment task.

Your Controlled Assessment task will take approximately 20 hours to complete and during this time you will be required to:

  • Analyse the requirements of a user
  • Design a programming solution
  • Create the program that you have designed
  • Test the solution for any bugs and other errors

Following the completion of this task, the rest of the year will be spent on exam technique.
