Alder Grange School

Calder Road, Rawtenstall, Rossendale, BB4 8HW

is a Lead School in the Network of Excellence

quote As an Oftsed "Outstanding" school at Alder Grange we have incorporated Computing into our KS3 curriculum through the inclusion of aspects such as encryption, visual basic and AppInventor in year 8 and scratch in year 7. These have been running for the last 2 years in order to build the foundations for offering GCSE Computing alongside GCSE IT from this September. We run a KS3/4 Computing Club at lunch times to allow students the opportunity to develop enthusiasm and interest in the subject. IT is a core subject at both KS3 and 4 and only a small number of students do not take a final qualification in IT or Computing at KS4. The Senior Leadership team support the subject by encouraging opportunties to link with other schools to work on Computing projects and through funding the subject to purchase resources. quote
