Transcript of Marlboorugh

Information and Communication Technology The Marlborough Science Academy 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. 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 gain and sharpen skills in various software packages used around the school and in the world of work. 'Shaping Futures' Throughout the years... Year 7 By the end of Year 7 the students are confidence,
autonomoususers of the School Network and of all
the standard office applications. Year 8 In Year 8 students follow an exciting curriculum
in which they learn about making movies,
sound editing, website design and much more. Year 9 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. Year 10/11 (GCSE) 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. Marlborough Science Academy also offers ICT at A level! Achievments Last year 100% of KS4 students attained
an A*-C grade at the end of the course. 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. Thank you for visiting! We hope to see you soon..!
