Computer Science at Senior School

We have grown up in a world where technology is constantly evolving, creating new fields to explore and changing the way we work in every area, from engineering and medicine to economics, fashion or design. Whatever your career plans, Computer Science is vital to develop your grasp of these ideas and concepts that will shape our world.

At Portland Place School we offer IGCSE Computer Science, where students delve deeper into the theoretical side of these technologies, while developing skills in problem solving and programming. Computer Science explores the principles of digital technology and a way of working that is called “computational thinking”, coding being in the core of this course. To succeed, you have to be able to think logically, solve puzzles and be tenacious when the going gets tough. This course is really creative and we are sure you will get a real buzz out of creating something yourself, especially when programming on Python.

If you enjoyed Scratch, GameSalad, HTML or Python in previous years, then you will find Computer Science ideal for you.

Making a computer dance to your tune is very rewarding!
