Computer Science Pupils Have The iDEA

11 Jan

Congratulations to all the pupils who completed the iDEA award within one term and have therefore additionally been awarded a Da Vinci award.

The iDEA award is an international award-winning programme that helps pupils to develop and demonstrate digital, enterprise and employability skills. Open to pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9, the award provides pupils with the opportunity to complement their Computer Science studies, and also qualifies as 25% of the Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze Award ‘Skill’ section.

The College’s ‘Cyber Stretch Club’ meets every Tuesday lunchtime, with Mr Musson and Mr Carter providing a positive learning environment, where pupils are encouraged to develop their computational thinking skills. Last term pupils attending the club worked towards completing the iDEA Award.
