Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

Dear Parents and Students

Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School

In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.

We are proud of our students’ academic achievements.  Just as importantly, we are a school that cares.  We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success.  We achieve both.

I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.

ICT COURSES

Why Study ICT?

Virtually everyone now uses ICT at home or at work.  You may want to pursue a career in the ever-changing world of ICT (e.g. website developer, network security, software engineer) or may want to develop your skills to prepare you for a career in other fields or you may just want to get the best out of ICT for your own personal use.

All students in England and Wales are now required to continue to develop their ICT skills throughout Key Stage 4.  As part of the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification, all students are entered for the Essential Skills Wales ICT qualification.

We offer a variety of courses at Key Stage 4:

Main Options:

  • GCSE ICT

For those students who would like to gain a wide knowledge and understanding of ICT.  40% of the assessment for GCSE is by written examination, 60% is assessed by completion of a controlled task.

  • GCSE Computer Science

For students who would like to gain a greater understanding of how computers work and develop programming sckills.  45% of the assessment is by written examination, 55% is assessed through completion of two controlled tasks.

Extended Core:

  • GCSE ICT Short Course

For students who would like to continue to develop their ICT skills and capability as well as furthering their understanding of how ICT is used in the wider world.  40% of the assessment for the short course GCSE is by written examination, 60% is assessed by completion of a controlled task.

As a high level of skill and commitment is required to be successful in this reduced time, students are accepted onto this course at the discretion of the Department and must have their option sheet signed.
