Ada Lovelace CofE High School will have a specialism in digital technologies and applications of Creative Media. It will benefit from strong partnerships with Twyford CofE High School, where Music Technology, Graphics and Computer Science are offered at GCSE and A level, and William Perkin CofE High School, where 78% of students study Computing in their first year.
All Ada Lovelace students will be given the opportunity to engage with the school’s specialism in their first year and we will build on the success of William Perkin in this area:
- At William Perkin 66% of students will start KS4 studying either GCSE Computer Science or an ICT equivalent in Year 9, with many of these selecting Computer Science as their GCSE option in Year 10.
- Current Year 11s at William Perkin are expected to do well in their GCSE in Computer Science.
- As William Perkin Sixth Form opens in September, Computer Science will be offered at A-Level
The Computing department are excited to be developing their wider learning offer, including working alongside the Physics department with our Engineering scholars.
