“Allah, none deserves to be worshipped except Him; The Ever-Living, Ever-Sustaining. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Who is there that can intercede with Him, except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what will be after them and they do not encompass anything of His knowledge, except what He wills. His Footstool extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, The Most Gracious.”

Being acquainted in Computer Science is vital for students in order to participate in a promptly changing world driven by the fast growing information and communication revolution together with the tremendous capabilities of new technologies. Thus our school is determined to provide appropriate, fully integrated, functional and supported resources in order to offer the highest level of education to all students together with the efficient support to teachers and staff members to enhance their performances in this subject.In September 2014, we replaced ICT by Computer Science (CS) at KS 3 and KS 4, following the national curriculum. Computing is concerned with the teaching of computational thinking, how computers and computer systems are designed and programmed, how they work and how to make best use of them in all aspectes of life. Our new approacjh is to amalgemate Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology. Curriculum Summary: The Computing Science Department continues to undergo huge development. Computer Science is taught in a dedicated specialist room and has dedicated two lessons per week in a discrete form. The equipment is up to date and students have facilities to work creatively with a range of hardware and software programs including those to produce video, sound, animations, still images, games and to control events. Our philosophy is based on developing confident and independent users who will continue to use the capability gained at Islamia Girls School throughout their lives, regrdless their career paths. Aims :
Although Islamia girls School offers a safe online environment through filtered internet access we recognise the importance of teaching our students about online safety and their responsibilities when using communication technology, as well as setting out regulations that all users should comply to. This topic is also covered as part of our PSHE provision in key stage 3 during Tutorials and through CS lessons.
The following website has all the recommended resources and all necessary information for the course:
Homework at KS3 is regularly built into the project assignments and these are not normally computer based. At KS4, portfolio building and practical homework tasks are essential to achieving the qualification and computer access, either at home or after school is essential. All students are expected to have a USB memory stick which they are expected to bring to school everyday.
