We believe that students deserve an IT and Business curriculum which prepares them for the fast changing digital world they live in.  The work across all Key Stages is designed to challenge the students to create ICT and Business solutions to key tasks and problems in the real world.  In our dedicated ICT suites, the pupils are taught how to become efficient users of digital technology, ranging from essential office skills to web designing and project planning.   As a department, we endeavour to increase pupil’s capability in the use of ICT and Business so that they become confident and independent users of a wide range of technologies.
