Welcome to Moreton School Computing Department. Our vision is clear: Through collaboration and teamwork, we deliver an effective, dynamic and efficient curriculum that offers students the opportunity to enhance their skills for further education or a good preparation for employment. We cover KS3 and KS4 and have recently re-introduced KS5 IT.
We have state of the art facilities and our staff are well equipped and committed to improvement, enabling us to provide students with high level, logical and technical ability. We are keen to develop high achievers hence our commitment to staff development and innovation.
As technology and qualifications develop we work hard to ensure our curriculum remains current and relevant to our students, whatever their ability or aspirations may be.
Extra-curricular opportunities enable students to complete work or perfect their skills. Our staff will challenge any stereotypes or unacceptable behaviour. Students have a clear understanding of our ethos and reciprocate this action. Students are recognised for positive behaviour and hard work. This enables us to provide a warm, friendly, safe and energetic learning environment.
