Curriculum Intent

Our intent is to develop students who understand how to become pioneers of the future using the principles of information, computation and how digital systems work. We equip students with understanding of how to use computational thinking and creativity to solve problems. We develop practical skills for the future workplace and for students to become an active participant in a digital world. The subject of IT aims to give students real life, practical skills that they will benefit from as they progress through school and beyond to sixth form, college, apprenticeships, University and employment.


Students will look at different technologies which could be used, why they should use them and how to make best use of them, to gather, store, manipulate and present data; known as data management. They will learn about tools and techniques for use in different digital hardware and software technologies, and how these can be integrated to create digital solutions to manage and communicate data and information. They will also be taught what data and information are and the legal, ethical and moral considerations when using technology to gather, store and present data and information, and how to mitigate the risks of cyber-attacks. we also give students experience to develop skills needed to work in the creative digital media sector.


IT has become an ever-growing part of human life, affecting many aspects of a person’s day, we at Maricourt recognise the importance of ensuring our students are experienced in an exciting and rapidly evolving subject.



"The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don't really even notice it, so it's part of everyday life." Bill Gates
