At its heart, Computer Science is the study of computing as a problem-solving process (as opposed to the study of computers, the devices). At its core there are two main elements: algorithms and data structures. Algorithms are the procedures we design to solve a problem (the recipe of steps). Data structures are how we organise and link our data together so we can extract meaning from it.
The course is made up of both externally assessed examinations and an internally assessed portfolio. King’s InterHigh will support with guidance around where external exams may be sat. These exams are sat at the end of the two year programme.
We have several fee packages and options, with differing levels of commitment to suit most circumstances. In most cases parents have the option to pay in instalments, spreading the cost of the investment.
