Computing

Computing encompasses three areas: information technology, digital literacy and computer science.

It is the most swiftly changing academic environment and one which directly affects students on a daily basis.

Computing is taught as a discrete subject in the Junior and Lower Schools, with an increased emphasis on computer science as students progress. Students experience a wide variety of application software, online activity and eSafety, and the principles involved in writing code. Boys develop their coding skills using a range of programming languages, and in the Sixth Form can take this to a higher level in our enrichment options programme.

Co-curricular activities provide outlets for those who wish to develop their skills. Tux Club is focussed on the Linux operating system, Open Source software, computer networking and the Raspberry Pi. Computing Club specialises in applications and coding, particularly for the web. A five day computing course is organised during Activities Week.
