The Computing and ICT department at Bulmershe offers a rich curriculum with a variety of engaging, challenging learning activities for students at key stages 3, 4 and 5.
We aim to ensure every student develops their knowledge, skills and understanding of computing in the 21stcentury, developing their understanding of the software and systems that underpin this technology. We also aim to develop their capabilities using ICT safely at work, at home and within their other studies.
Computing is taught in 4 dedicated ICT suites which all have interactive whiteboards, projectors, printers and all relevant software and programs to deliver the new national curriculum in computing. The Computing teaching rooms are together in one block which also houses the IT Technicians all equipped with good working PCs and all pupils have access to individual PCs.  We have a full time IT Network Manager and Senior Technician who both maintain a very stable network.

Extra-Curricular Activities

KS3 (Year 7 & 8): Computing Lunchtime Club runs every Tuesday lunchtime from 1:25 – 1:55pm. This provides students the opportunity of working independently to extend their learning in computing. We also run the Legoland trip twice a year giving nearly 100 KS3 students an opportunity to attend the Computer workshop at Legoland in addition to having a nice, fun day out. Trips to National museum of computing, Microsoft and participation in activities organised by STEM and Reading University are also on offer during the year.

KS4 (Year 9, 11 & 11) & KS5 (Year 12 & 13): Every Tuesday 3 – 4pm. Students are offered the opportunity to catch-up with work they are behind with or those that they require additional help and support.
