KS3 - What you are going to learn


The students are going to focus on the Jersey computing curriculum. The emphasis is on teaching computational thinking to design and develop computer systems and ultimately on the creation of programs to solve real world problems.

This is not to say that other strands like Digital Literacy and Information Technology are not going to be covered.

Regarding Information Technology: the students will also learn the use of spreadsheets; word processing; presentation and communication tools, including considerations to e-safety, privacy and intellectual property and in respect of Digital Literacy students will learn the use of internet, searching and browsing the web, collaboration via email, social networks and collaborative workspace among other topics.

This scheme of learning has been developed to fit in with the current Jersey Curriculum for Computer Science, as well as preparing students to study Computer Science at GCSE and beyond. It is designed to be taught in 1 hour of lessons a week, throughout years 7 to 9.

KS4 - What you are going to learn.


We are following the Cambridge Nationals ICT.

This is a vocationally-related qualification that takes an engaging, practical and inspiring approach to learning and assessment. The everyday use of ICT, from PCs to smartphones, now impacts all of our lives. Cambridge Nationals in ICT reflects this and provides students with a solid understanding of the subject which they can use in their working lives. Three themes are covered: business information systems, creative and technical.

This course consists of 3 pieces of coursework and an exam; each part accounts for a 25% of the final mark.

The courseworks will cover the use of Emails; File Systems; Databases; Spreadsheets and Presentation Software. The coursework brief gives scenarios where the students have to apply their knowledge.

The students will be taught the skills beforehand to enable them to tackle the coursework brief.

Computing at Les Quennevais School


At Les Quennevais, we strive to teach the students to think, to reason logically not only for the development of computer applications, but also for any intellectual and professional aspect of their lives.

The same way as when we teach to read and write, we do not do it to make the next generation of great professional writers, but to help the students on any aspect of their future lives.

Likewise, when we teach how to program, we do not do it to create great IT Engineers, but to help them to get a better understanding of the world around them.
