Computing and IDT

At YC, we combine passionate, specialist teaching and state-of-the-art resources with cross-curricular application of computing skills to produce confident, effective users of technology who have knowledge of how things works and can see purpose in their activities. The boys gain a broad understanding in this essential life skill; learning how to utilise software to good effect and beginning to appreciate how new technologies are developed.

In addition to their Computing lessons, boys also have lessons in Innovative Design Technology with a focus on robotics. Key skills and understanding in digital literacy, e-Safety and computer science are developed in parallel and through our cross-curricular content.

We have excellent Computing facilities with two computer suites as well as a multitude of resources in the Art, Science and Music departments, interactive whiteboards in every classroom, digital cameras, robots and after school clubs including Lego League ensuring that our ‘give it a go’ approach has the necessary backing to build skill and interest.

Facilities for the boys to access school work from home and for teachers to set and monitor homework remotely are available if circumstances require.

We take Internet Safety very seriously and educate our pupils (and parents) about safe use of the Internet, email and mobile technology. All pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe when online and we also offer an awareness sessions as part of our support to parents.
