As well as being an integral part of other subjects, ICT is also taught as a discrete subject.
Our principal aims are to develop ICT capability, and give the students confidence in using ICT skills in different contexts, exploring new possibilities and communicating ideas.
Many of our specialist teachers are female, and girls are encouraged to become involved in all aspects of information technology, including programming.
