A Brief Introduction to the Digital Studies Department
"Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other." Bill Gates
Digital Studies department comprises Business Studies and Computing. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for the fast-paced digital world they live in.
In Business Studies, we aim to encourage students to develop the practical skills and applied knowledge they will need in the business and enterprise sector. Students put their learning into practice and develop valuable transferable skills that can be applied to real-life contexts and work situations. Key skills such as thinking creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically, and critically will allow students to succeed academically and become aware of the dynamic nature of the business world.
In Computing, we aim to develop engagement and enthusiasm for Computing whilst following the national curriculum. Students have the opportunity to acquire new and develop existing skills such as logical thinking and problem-solving skills. They will use applications creatively to analyse data and design a variety of solutions to real-world problems. Computing has deep links with other subjects and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Computing underpins today’s modern lifestyle; it is essential that all students gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world.
