Computing has deep links with Maths, Science, and Design & Technology. At its core is Computer Science, in which 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, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.

Computing 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. Included in this section is an overview of the topics that will be covered during Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.
