ICT Department

The ICT Department forms part of the Technology Learning Area (TLA).
The department is a well organised, energetic and very effective team
whose teaching and support enables students to achieve their full
potential: our recent results have been outstanding.

Staffing
There are currently nine members of staff working in this expanding
department, five of whom have full-time ICT timetables. The Head of
Department is responsible for whole school curriculum ICT and different
teachers within the department hold responsibility for KS3, KS4 and the
school website.

Resources
The ICT department has four dedicated classrooms for the teaching of ICT and has access
to four other ICT areas around the school. All the rooms have SMART boards, which are
used extensively in lessons. The Academys new Sixth Form extension will be completed by
September 2009 and will house five more ICT rooms.
Each classroom has between 20 and 30 workstations so all students in sets 1 to 5 have
access to a computer in every lesson. Class sets of headphones and microphones are available in each room as well as the use of digital cameras.
We have a huge range of software available to use including:

Adobe Creative Suite

Serif Suite

Movie Making Software

Microsoft Office

Teaching and Learning
The department teaches across the full ability range from Year 7 upwards. We group
students predominantly according to their attainment and ability, but also take into
consideration other academic indicators (e.g. SATs scores) and their social interaction with
other students.
Key Stage 3
Years 7, 8, 9 students receive two one hour lessons per week. The students are taught in
two parallel bands, one of four sets and one of five.
As an ICT specialist academy there is a lot of emphasis on developing the key ICT skills
throughout key stage 3 and beyond. All students will take the ICT functional skills exam at
the end of key stage 3 in preparation for the GCSE.
The curriculum is set out in a detailed Scheme of Work and Programme of Study using the
New National Framework and Curriculum for ICT.
Key Stage 4
In Years 10 & 11 Sets 1 to 3 will study the AQA GCSE Specification A. Set 4 and 5 students
will study the OCR CLAIT Plus course that is linked to the Microsoft Office Specialist course
and is a level two qualification. All students receive two one hour lessons per week.
Key Stage 5
The Academy will have a new Sixth Form built in time for September 2009. We will teach AS
and A2 Level ICT and BTEC National Award for IT Practitioners.

Exam Results
We are delighted by the first two years key stage 3 results. The first students to finish key
stage 3 since the Academy opened achieved 91% level 5 and above and the second year
achieved 85% level 5 and above. We are extremely confident this will be reflected in our first
set of GCSE results.
