Computing / ICT

Mr M McWatt - Head of Department

Welcome to the Computing & ICT Department

Our fantastic ICT Department here at Altrincham College are passionate about delivering a high-quality computing education which ensures that students know how computers and computer systems work and how they can be designed and programmed.

Throughout KS3-5 our students will develop an understanding of the key principles of ICT, how digital systems work, and ultimately, how to put this knowledge to use through programming.

Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of multimedia content.

Developing a Strong understanding of computing is of paramount importance, as it ensures that our pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
