Computer Science equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computer Science has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. In Computer Science pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, students are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computer Science also ensures that 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.
