Supporting your Child

PC and Internet access is very useful. All of the free educational programs we use are Windows-based; there are Apple Mac versions of most, but they tend not to be compatible if students want to bring work to college. Homework is often set as part of the IT and Computing curriculum and can often be research based and forms an important part of the learning in the lesson.
