Lead Teacher: Mr S Bailey-Young (stephen.bailey-young[at] kingussiehigh.org.uk)
Kingussie High School is committed to equipping our learners with the skills they need to be responsible digital citizen and effective contributors to the digital economy. To this end, we are developing our Computing curriculum to give our young people great experiences of working with different types of technology and learning how to use them safely, responsibly and effectively.
Currently all of our S1 pupils are given a broad introduction to computing skills, including working with web apps and some basic coding. In S2 and S3, pupils can opt in to our IT course, where they will develop a wide range of digital skills.
In 2016/17, we offered Digital Passport to pupils in S4-6 for the first time. This course is great preparation for using digital technologies in personal, learning, business and community contexts.
