    What’s it all about?

    Computational thinking is at the core of Computer Science. It allows us to model problems in ways that enable us to develop effective solutions using skills like abstraction, inference and algorithm design. The impact of computing on all individuals and society as a whole will continue to increase and the need for problem-solvers able to meet these challenges head-on is paramount. If you want to be challenged intellectually, and have a keen interest in programming, then this course will be very rewarding.

    You’ll need 5 GCSE’s at grade C (new grade 4) including English Language and Maths at grade B (new grade 6).

    Why college is different to school

    A fresh start

    Sometimes you just need a clean break to become the person you were destined to be. Starting college is the perfect opportunity to break free and become that new person!

    New people

    Our diverse student community means that you will meet lots of new people of different ages, backgrounds and interests, so you can enjoy making lifelong friendships!

    Specialist Staff

    Most of our lecturers are industry savvy and are experts in teaching 16-18 year olds. They have lots of valuable experience and knowledge to pass onto you.

    Independence

    College is a more mature and relaxed environment than school and you are treated like an adult. You’ll be on first name terms with your lecturers so no more Sir and Miss! You can also start to make your own decisions.

    Free time

    Your timetable will be very different to school. You will have a lot more free time to take part in extra-curricular activities, study, or get extra money and work experience with a part-time job.

    Different environment

    College is a very different learning environment to school. You may even become more inspired and have a new motivation to work towards your future goal in a college environment.

    More choice

    A college can offer a much wider choice of A-Level subjects, plus vocational courses in lots of different subjects and at different levels.

    More opportunities

    You will have the opportunity to take part in lots of different activities outside of the classroom to boost your confidence and help you develop your skills and personal qualities.

    Specialist facilities

    A college can invest in an extensive range of industry-standard facilities to give you the skills and knowledge to prepare for university or employment, and can also offer subjects that need specialist facilities.
