Key Stage 5

This stage of your education is preparing you for the world of work or further education. With this in mind the way that you approach the course should be different.

  • Independent Work - you should be taking ownership of your own learning, reading around the subject and doing extra work at home making sure you fully understand concepts
  • Becoming a Sixth Form Mentor - come along lower school lessons and share your understanding. A programme can be tailored to your available study periods.

Here are some of the extra-curricular activities we offer in ICT, why not get involved?

  • Redstone Club
  • Kodu Club
  • Lunchtime support and development - a perfect opportunity to work as a mentor during these sessions
