Our Computing curriculum is designed to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The core of Computing is Computer Science where pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
The HPS curriculum ensures that our pupils are digitally literate – able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the workplaces of the future and for the pupils as active participants in a digital world. We also strive to ensure our curriculum teaches pupils to be responsible online citizens.
We have excellent Computing facilities including iPads, a desktop computing suite, wireless networks, interactive smartboards in classrooms, and software and programs to support our Computing curriculum and development of wider IT skills.
