In Computing, students learn the principles behind computers in the modern world. Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines. Students will also learn how to gather and use information, present it and share it with others, using ICT to communicate.
