Computer Science A Level (Linear) at Dereham Neatherd High School
Computer Science qualifications are, above all else, relevant to the modern and changing world of computing, and they are also relevant to the higher education community. The qualification can be tailored to individual student needs and has an open-source ethos allowing you to use any programming language that you wish to. Whilst we teach the course through Python and VB.NET you may choose an alternative if you wish to.
Computer Science is a practical subject where you can apply the academic principles learned in the classroom to real-world systems. It’s an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, that can look at the natural world through a digital prism. The course values computational thinking, helping students to develop the skills to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. These are the concepts that lie at the heart of the qualification. They will be the best preparation for students who want to go on to study Computer Science at a higher level and will also provide a good grounding for other subject areas that require computational thinking and analytical skills. Students will also have an excellent foundation to go straight into employment in the industry.
