IT & Computing
At Bohunt School, we bring IT & Computing to the forefront of the curriculum. They develop both creativity and logical thinking – skills that are vital for life in today’s technology-focused world.
In Years 7, 8 and 9, students are taught in tutor groups, working on a set project focused on a particular area of computing, preparing them for GCSE study.
At KS4, students can choose between GCSE Computing and GCSE ICT. In Computing, they learn about computing theory, hardware, software, databases and programming, including working with simple games programming, Python and JAVA. ICT looks at using technology to solve problems in creative and exciting ways. Students learn the theory of ICT, and the use of games consoles, mobile phones, handheld devices, online shopping, ICT issues and communicating online.
We also offer the BTEC Level 2 in Creative Digital Media, in which students use ICT and media tools to complete projects to a brief, and learn the theory of digital creative media by looking at different media sectors, production methods, website production and photography.
Students have a huge choice of extracurricular activities, including the ‘Gadget Show Live’ trip at Easter and visits to Portsmouth University for Java challenges. We also run clubs, such as programming on Raspberry Pis and Retro Gaming, to extend their knowledge beyond the curriculum.
