Computer Science A Level at Cleeve School
Computers are widely used in all aspects of government, business, industry, education, leisure and the home. In this increasingly technological age, the study of Computer Science, and particularly how computers are used in the solution of problems, is an
essential skill. Learning to use software packages and hardware is not a major part of the course; the emphasis is on how a computer works and computational thinking (problem solving) - an important life skill.
Computer Science is a highly academic subject which demands both logical understanding and creativity in order to design, write, test and debug computer applications. You will learn to develop computer applications via a high level computer language as well as developing an in depth understanding of the theory behind computers and how they communicate. This includes networking, the structure of the Internet and web page design, the fundamental parts of the computer and its architecture and how data is represented in computers. How do processors work? How is hardware made to do the things we want it to do?
