IT

The King John School is a Maths and Computing specialist school. As such, we are exceptionally proud of the facilities and dedicated staff we offer our ICT students. Our successful and specialist staff work hard to ensure our students success at both Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.

From Year 7 we ensure that pupils have a strong knowledge of ICT. As well as building the foundations of the course requirements for GCSE, should they take the subject as an option, we also understand the importance of having strong ICT knowledge in the modern world. It is absolutely fundamental that we build this knowledge in our students from the start so we ensure success in all our subjects in the long run.

The ICT department are also leading the way with tailoring our students learning. We now offer a three-year joint GCSE with Media Studies as both courses have components that transition. In keeping with our modern approach, we also ensure all our facilities are up to date, using the latest software. For after all in just a few years’ time these students will be working on hardware that has not been conceived yet, regardless if they seek a career in ICT or not.

Ensuring our students are ready for the next generation of technology.
