Computing and Interactive Media at Fareham Academy prepares students to become digitally literate in a modern world. The curriculum aims to ensure that students can responsibly and competently use information and communication technology at a suitable level for further education and the future workplace. Students are taught to confidently and creatively use information and communication technology to be analytical and problem solving for real life situations.
All students participate in a Key Stage 3 Computing and Interactive Media programme which ensures they develop skills to underpin their future careers. They access Microsoft and Adobe to support in completing a range of briefs set in a real life context. For example, planning an overseas holiday including the costings and creating a webpage for a client. These skills support students in contextualising numeracy, literacy and design. Staying safe online is a constant focus on the persistant changes in the digital world. Students are taught how and why this is crucial to their welfare.
Focus days provide students with opportunities to explore coding and programming, including Boolean logic. These are delivered by industry specialists, ensuring our students access the most contemporary systems.
