Computing | Rainhill High School


In a world where technology advances in leaps and bounds, where jobs are constantly created that previously did not exist, it is our responsibility to ensure our students are ready for this digital world we now find ourselves in.

In computing we prepare our students to live in a predominantly digital and technologically rich world, where this technology is not only used to entertain and create, but also, to learn. In this ever-changing digital environment, we will deliver a curriculum that assists our students to become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level that is suitable for use in future workplaces, particularly those in the local area of logistics, manufacturing, transport, technology and pharmaceuticals. These skills include the fundamental knowledge of MS Office Applications as well as those of computational thinking, communication, analytics, problem solving and collaboration.
