Computing

The Computing faculty operates in a joint capacity with the Mathematics faculty to offer technology based course.

Through the study of technology courses, students engage in a diverse range of practical experiences and develop knowledge and understanding of contemporary and advancing technologies. They develop solutions to identified problems and situations, and explore the impact of technologies on the individual, society and the environment.

The Computing faculty is committed to providing all students with the essential skills in technology, to be well equipped and prepared for the digital world in the 21st century. The knowledge, skills and understanding required in Computing are presented in numerous courses, offered across the junior and senior year groups.

All students can access modern computing facilities, equipment, software and resources. Our digital learning spaces allow students to access rich lesson content and course materials at designated times of the day; at school and at home.
