Computing and Media

These are exciting times for us at Manor CE Academy. The old concepts of ICT are being replaced by a new, stronger emphasis on Computing. New schemes of work at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 reflect this.

Students learn about computer hardware and software. Furthermore, students design and create their own software tools through practical programming in a range of languages including Scratch, Python, HTML, and Java, as well as using macros and advanced tools in spreadsheets and databases to solve practical and realistic problems.

However, we also maintain those elements of multimedia design and creative thinking that are vital in today’s immersive world.

Movie making, animation, sound creation and 2D and 3D graphics are popular units of work. The department promotes creativity and independence with students experimenting with ideas, researching and collaborating with each other and sharing learning and views.

Finally, students are also involved in discussions and tasks based around E-safety and living life online.
