The department is staffed by:

Mr A. Kulke

Mr A. Thilakarathne (Network Manger)

All teachers have responsibility for teaching KS3 and KS4 Computer Science and ICT. Staff are available at break times and most days after school to give help and support to students wanting to improve their work. Throughout the year students will be given the opportunity to become involved in Internet Safer Day, iDEA Award, First Lego Award and Technocamp sessions. We are also fortunate enough to have our own coding room which KS3 will use in some of their lessons.
