In A-Level Computer Science students will learn advanced programming techniques supported by a variety of high-level languages, developing computational thinking, problems solving and programming skills along the way. They will discuss how both internal and external components of a computer system function and work together, and look at the role of systems software, the use of databases, networks and web technologies, and mathematical concepts critical to computing such as binary and Boolean algebra. Students will also tackle the moral, cultural and ethical issues surrounding the use of computer systems.
