Facilities
Pupils are taught in ICT1 and ICT2, each with 31 well-specified desktop computers.
There are 2 additional dedicated computer suites, available for other subjects to book as necessary; 4 suites in total.
Hardware
Department of Computing machines are of the following specification:

Processor: Intel i5 Quad-Core

RAM: 4Gb

Storage: 128Gb SSD
All computers are continuously upgraded as part of a rolling hardware-renewal program.
For some units, pupils are required to bring their own pair of headphones to make full use of our in-house tutorials. Sound is not a requirement, but it is useful for pupils to hear explanations.
It can be useful for pupils to bring memory sticks, so as to be able to continue with the work at home. This is not a requirement however, as pupils can access all thier work from home if they have an Internet connection.
