Transcript of Marlborough Presentation
Last year 100% of KS4 students attained an A*-C grade at the end of the course. Many of these managed to attain a double award. At KS5 A’Level results were excellent - on average students achieved 1.2 grades higher than their target grades. Pass rates in the Level 2 Functional Skills examination sat by Year 9 students was more than twice the national average. ICT is a compulsory subject at Key Stage 3 and a popular optional subject at KS4 and KS5. At Marlborough we have six designated ICT suites around the school, two of which are to be found in the Business and ICT block. Staff within the Faculty are experienced and successful in the delivery of KS5 courses including AS and A2. In Key Stage 4 ICT is an optional discrete subject, although it is thoroughly mapped and firmly embedded into the learning within all subject areas. Those opting to study GCSE ICT will complete two units. The first, ‘Living in a Digital World’ provides them with the opportunity to explore how digital technology impacts on the lives of individuals, organisations and society. This accounts for 40% of the final mark and is assessed in a formal examination. The second unit, ‘Using Digital Tools’ is a practical unit in which students broaden and enhance their ICT skills. This unit accounts for 60% of the final mark and takes the form of a substantial controlled assessment. In Key Stage 3 ICT is taught as a discrete subject to Years 7, 8 and 9. Students are taught for two lessons per fortnight. Lessons are planned around the Capability Framework for ICT, the main aim of which is to enable students to acquire and sharpen skills in various software packages used around the school and in the world of work. By the end of Year 7 the students are confidence, autonomous users of the School Network and of all the standard office applications. In Year 8 students follow an exciting curriculum in which they learn about making movies, sound editing, website design and much more. Year 9 students undertake the challenge of a Functional Skills examination at Level 1 or Level 2. This is a formal qualification which is highly regarded by colleges and employers. After the examination Year 9 students use the time remaining before the end of the year to learn how to use a range of exciting tools for game creation and comic book design.
