Computer Science is a course that is relevant to the modern and changing world of computing. It is not a course aimed at those who want to use computers for design or gameplay, it is aimed at those who want a better understanding of how computers work at base level.
There is a focus on programming and although there is not a requirement to have previously studied programming languages it would certainly be an advantage. Computational thinking is at the heart of the course, helping students to develop skills to solve problems, design systems and understand human and machine intelligence.
The course gives students a clear progression into higher education, as it was designed after consultation with members of BCS, CA and top universities.
