In Year 7 pupils have one lesson of ICT a week. Pupils are taught in mixed ability Tutor Groups. Pupils will be completing a different topic each term, each with assessment tasks linked to them. All the topics are supported by our Virtual Learning Environment, The Leap, where pupils can see objectives, tasks, examples and upload their completed work.
