Computing

pupil working on computer in class

The Computing Department teaches all year groups at Merchiston from First Form upwards. In Shell and Fifth Form we offer GCSE Computer Science and iGCSE Information and Communication Technology, both from Edexcel.

Our A-Level cohort is offered Computer Science, and follows the AQA specification. In the Fourth Form, pupils are given the chance to undertake an SQA Level 4 qualification in Cybersecurity.

I am inspired and humbled when meeting pupils who I know will grow to be better programmers than I ever could be. Truly humbling.

Mr Thomson, Head of Computing
