The Computing department offers two extra curricular clubs for students to learn about computing outside of lesson time:
- Programming Club: This runs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4pm until 5.30pm. Here pupils seek to complete the Code Academy python programming course and then move on to solving a range of programming challenges.
- Robotics Club: This club run on a Thursday Afternoon. Students work in teams of 4 to build a robot that solves a given problem. The top performers will be entered into the VEX robotics challenge the following year. We enter pupils into two regional events:
- Vex IQ Challenge (Years 7, 8 and 9)
- VEX Robotics Competition (Year 10, 11, 12 and 13)
The junior competition is run to identify talented pupils who want to continue with the competition throughout middle and upper school.
