At Great Walstead we have combined Computer Science and Design & Technology in an exciting and forward thinking discipline, 'Digital Innovation'.
Pupils develop their coding and programing skills, not in isolation, but to link both subjects in a stimulating and creative way. Our girls and boys learn to program and code, while at the same time designing their own robotics to carry out these instructions. Our 3D printer and our laser cutter allows pupil’s computer designs to be brought to life in an electrifying and modern dimension.
This exciting subject captures children’s creativity but also stretches their logic skills and we are very proud of the two pupils who have been awarded BAFTAs for their digital designs, while Julia Sutherland, our Head of Digital Innovation, was also nominated as best teacher.
