Pupils are encouraged to understand that ICT work is regarded as “work in progress” which can be improved continually and to demonstrate curiosity, taking a personal interest in the latest ICT technologies.
Building on the skills acquired in Primary school, pupils engage in wide range of interesting and demanding ICT activities that allow pupils to demonstrate a high level of ICT skills in a range of cross-curricular contexts.
The aim at Key Stage 3 (KS3) is to foster a love of learning by providing pupils with broad and balanced KS3 skills based ICT education.

GCSEs in England are changing, with grades for certain GCSE subjects now graded via numbers.
Historically, GCSE students would get a letter assigned to their performance in each subject, from an A*, the best possible mark, to a U, for a paper which failed to achieve any grade.
However, GCSEs now have numerical grades from 1-9 awarded instead of the traditional lettered results.
The government is shaking up GCSEs to make them tougher - in the hope that they'll be taken more seriously by employers.
