Why teach ICT?
In school, ICT forms a vital part of developing knowledge, understanding and experience within every student. Pupils need a broad range of experiences that reflect real-world uses of technology. Therefore, they need support to acquire and develop the skills necessary to become informed and responsible users of ICT.
Here at Les Voies students have a rich and wide variety of exposure in ICT to equip them with skills needed for the modern work environment.
At KS3 (year 7-9) students follow a thematic curriculum across subject areas. This academic year, students have focused on hardware, viral content, website design and desktop publishing.
