Computer Science at Key Stage 3

KS3 Curriculum for Computer Science 

At KS3, students develop their understanding and use of networks, data representation, programming, cybersecurity and e-safety. They also enhance their use of Office applications through project-based units where they work collaboratively and respectfully using online tools. Students develop a systematic approach to problem solving through abstraction and decomposition when developing coded solutions. They also learn how to make effective progress through applying exam technique and understanding how to provide and act on constructive feedback. These key skills provide a good basis for GCSE Computer Science but equally, can be applied to all subjects across the curriculum.
