Computing & ICT Clubs
In conjunction with the wealth of ICT courses that the department has on offer, we pride ourselves on further developing the students' interest and skills in ICT as part of their extra curricular activities. These extension classes enable them to look in more detail at some of the more exciting areas of ICT. ICT cross-curricular clubs will be offered in every year group:

Year 10: Content Comic Book - SCRATCH can be used for building interactive stories/games. Can be subject/topic specific

Additionally, the department run regular lunchtime ICT homework clubs, where students can make use of the ICT facilities to enhance their homework or put in some extra time on their coursework.
