Computer Science

Computer Science at UTC South Durham focuses upon preparing our students for the modern digital world.  Throughout the two years at GCSE, students will learn to understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science including programming, algorithms, data representation, computer hardware, and network security.

At UTC South Durham, we deliver OCR GCSE Computer science specification, which encourages learners to be inspired, and challenged through completing a coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study. OCR’s specification enables learners to gain an insight into a number of key fields of computer science and helps to prepare learners for employment in the digital technologies industry.
