Welcome to the Computing & ICT Department at Outwood Academy Ormesby

Computer Science is the study of the principles and use of computers. Its study will make you question how the systems that you use in a modern day society work and encourage you to explore the concepts behind the technology you use and develop skills to become a creator of technology yourself.

Enrichment

In every one of our academies a vast number of after- academy enrichment activities take place each week. Students are provided with opportunities to add depth to their learning and develop personal skills through a rich and varied enrichment programme.

Students will have the chance to enjoy new experiences and consolidate their timetabled learning through this programme. Further detailed information on the opportunities available to students can be found in the academy’s Enrichment Brochure by clicking HERE

SMSC

Students across the year groups focus on safe use of ICT and in particular staying safe online.

Students study a wide range of topics which promote their thinking about moral and social issues. Students look at the impact ICT has upon society and analyse the implications of this.

Throughout all classes careful management of file and folders is considered and students are encouraged to be pro active in their approach to this.
