Computer Science

In today’s world most things rely on computers!  Are you interested in knowing how computers work?  Have you ever wanted to make a computer game rather than just play one?  The new Computer Science GSCE will teach you the theory and practice behind the screen and keyboard.  The course provides excellent preparation for higher study and employment in the field of Computer Science
