The College wants to inspire and develop the next wave of developers/ programmers whilst also focusing on the keys skills required for working within the 21st Century, no matter what career path students take.

Framlingham College’s Director of Computer Science, John Harrod said, “Computer Science is the study of how computers work, how they are designed and how they are programmed and this is taught throughout the College. We also focus on student’s ability to use a range of professional software in business contexts, preparing them for the working world.

Students are taught Computer Science, or Computing right from Year 3 to 9 and is offered as a GCSE and A Level option that further develops students understanding and application of Computer Science. Our hands on approach allows students to witness the theory come to life in lessons where we rebuild computers, program robots and build networks. The courses build upon each other and aim to develop a deep understanding of the digital world allowing students to begin to create their own software and implement their exciting ideas. These courses give students a solid foundation within the field of Computer Science.

The College also offers a range of extra-curricular activities that focus on the practical elements of developing games and mobile applications, amongst other exciting skills.

In the words of Barack Obama, ‘Don’t just buy a new video game, make one. Don’t just download the latest App, help design it. Don’t just play on your phone, program it!’.”
