Why choose Computer Science?

Have you ever wondered how the Web works? Or how anybody can start to develop something as complex as a new computer game? Computer Science is an exciting and challenging subject in which you will develop valuable skills in problem solving as well as learning how computers work. Many of our students go on to higher education courses in computer science but you will gain skills and knowledge which will prove useful in a wide range of other courses and careers, particularly in maths, science and engineering. The new A level course is even more strongly focussed on problem solving and programming. You will learn how to analyse problems, design algorithms and write programs. Most students have no previous experience of programming and we assume none. We provide excellent support in the form of online resources and one-to-one help. However, we also provide adequate challenge for the increasing number of students who have taken a GCSE in Computing or Computer Science.
