Our S3 and S4 classes follow the new National 4 and National 5 level Computing Science courses as laid out in the SQA course and unit support notes. The pupils will study two distinct sections, one on computer science and another on information science. Classroom materials for these courses are still under development.
Each of these courses is supported by Nationally provided materials or by materials created in the department. Department created sets of materials and resources offer a variety of learning and teaching experiences which will enable teachers to meet the aims of the course as stated in the arrangements document and also retain pupil motivation at each level. Where necessary the commercial and the nationally produced materials have been supplemented to provide similar learning experiences.
