Computer Science

Our GCSE Computer Science course gets students working with real-world, practical programming techniques that give them a good understanding of what makes technology work.

Developed collaboratively with teachers, industry and the wider computer science community, we’ve made sure that our GCSE has built-in progression to further studies and is recognised as developing the skills that employers value.

The qualification is split into two components:

  • Component 1 – Practical programming – is examined by controlled assessment.
  • Component 2 – Computing fundamentals – is exam based.
