The Department aims to:
Develop pupils' ICT skills
Develop pupils' knowledge and understanding of Information and
ICT at Stonyhurst
Information Technology is now an integral part of all of our working lives and is set to become even more significant. Whilst all pupils will leave school with a good foundation in ICT skills, some will wish to develop their understanding to a higher level.
Lower Grammar (Year 9) & Grammar (Year 10) - GCSE Short Course ICT
The focus of the course is to ensure that all pupils are not only skilled in using new technologies but also appreciate their wider role in society at large. By having their ICT capability formally recognised the college believes it is providing grounding in skills and knowledge, which will prove invaluable higher up the school and beyond.
Poetry & Rhetoric - (Year 12 & 13) - AS / A2 Course ICT
Many of the topics introduced in the GCSE short course reappear in a more developed form. The course uses a task driven approach to problem solving and decision making and requires the pupil to analyse, specify, implement and evaluate an ICT solution to real problems and situations. Experience will be gained in the use of the higher level functions of generic software packages such as databases, spreadsheets and desk top publishers as well as developing an understanding of multi-media, web page authoring, high level application programming, data logging and control.
