Vision 

 

At Frenchwood, we aim to provide a high-quality computing education and equip our children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.  We want our children to be confident leaders in the world of computing and at Frenchwood we provide our students with the skills, creativity and enthusiasm to continue striving in computing independently. 

 

The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of Computer Science (information and computation), Information Technology (how digital systems work) and Digital Literacy (how to put this knowledge to use through programming) as well as E- Safety.
