We believe in our learners abilities and strive to provide them with the skills and knowledge which will be a fundamental tools used by everyone by the middle of the 21st Century. Just like reading, writing and arithmetic.
Our mission is to make sure that our learners develop the skills and knowledge in working with real-world programming and to provide a good understanding of the fundamental principles of computing which include computational thinking, a focus on cyber security, abstraction, decomposition, logic, algorithms, and data representation. They will analyse problems in computational terms through practical experience of solving such problems, including designing, writing and debugging programs.
By the end of their academy all learners will understand the components that make up digital systems and how they communicate with one another and with other systems. They will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to deal with the real world of digital technology to the individual and to wider society and apply mathematical skills relevant to computer science.
