Computing

At the Marchant-Holliday school, we aim to equip pupils with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) knowledge for today’s ever-emerging technological environment. The demand for excellent ICT skills will only increase as new technologies emerge. Lessons are designed to be fun, as well as informative, to stimulate and encourage learning. 

The school has its own ICT suite, which is equipped with PCs, Chromebooks and IPads. Pupils learn the basics of computer systems, principles of coding such as, loops and repetition, they also learn about Cyber Security, Esafety - searching the internet safely. The Pupil Zone on the school website also includes information on online safety and anti-bullying links. 

Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in films of school events, podcasts and audio recording and we are very fortunate to have Virtual Reality equipment. Virtual reality helps pupils to engage with their learning in way that is more realistic. We also have a small 3D printer; students are able to learn the principles of computer aided design (CAD) and manipulate three-dimensional shapes into a model.
