Grafham Master SQ Due to a number of urgent remedial repairs and contractual works, Grafham Grange School will be closed to all students on Friday 24th May 2024. School will reopen again on Monday 3rd June 2024.

Computing introduces students to the fundamentals of computer and digital communications technologies, discovering the varied roles and wider implications of computers and digital communications in the modern world.
Studying Computing will allow students to attain better success in education, by giving students a comprehensive understanding of how computers work; how to use computer and communications technology responsibly and respectfully; and how students can make best use of computers in not just their own education but more broadly in their daily lives.

The students will explore topics such as internet safety, internals of computers, and the legal, honest, and ethical use of computers and digital communication. Students will also develop their self-belief and confidence in using computers and learn more practical skills such as using word processors, spreadsheets and safe internet browsing. Then moving on to more advanced topics such as digital design and graphics, editing digital audio and music, and programming. We will also be investigating additional topics such as artificial intelligence, and robotics, and how these two ever-evolving themes are changing how we live within the global community. We strive to prepare our students for the working world, and give them the knowledge, experience, motivation and skills they need to achieve in whatever career they choose to pursue.
