ICT and Computing

The ICT/Computing department at Brownhill Learning Community benefits from two fully networked computer rooms. We have a range of software programs that equip the pupils with the skills and knowledge needed to achieve in this subject.


The Curriculum for ICT/Computing has been designed to ensure that the pupils have the opportunity to access units of work which provide the knowledge and skills needed to access in computing and ICT. Computer Science is a new subject in schools that requires pupils to apply their mathematical knowledge and problem solving skills to various scenarios. This subject requires hard work and resilience.


Since September 2018 we have made changes to the Key Stage 3 Curriculum to ensure that the curriculum is engaging, accessible and relevant to the needs of our pupils.
