Computing A Level at St Peter's Catholic Comprehensive School

Course description

Computing is about understanding in detail, how computer systems actually work. The microprocessor lies at the heart of every computing system and can be found absolutely everywhere, from the PC on your desk to laptops, PDAs, mobile phones, cars and microwave ovens. Modern society simply could not function without computers, but few people really understand how it all works. Computing at A-Level will give you a deep insight and understanding of how it all fits together, from the microprocessor, to memory, storage, operating systems and network architectures. You will also develop your ability to look at a problem and start to think about ways in which it can be solved.
