Computer Science

Maidstone Grammar School has a long history of teaching computing at both KS4 and KS5. The new specifications, for both GCSE and A-Level give an exciting insight into how computers work, are programmed and are used to solve problems.

Among the many benefits, this subject is designed to encourage candidates to:

  • develop their problem-solving ability in a computing context using an algorithmic approach
  • demonstrate their knowledge of programming through problem solving scenarios
  • develop an understanding of the hardware and software aspects of Computing.
