Students are encouraged to purchase the blue 'OCR Revision Guide for GCSE Computer Science 9-1 course' published by CGP books (ISBN:978-1782946021). This is available at half of the RRP (for only £3.50) from the main reception in school.

 

The expectation is that students will work through the topics in this book alongside their lessons as part of their commitment to being a responsible learner.

 

The revision guide will prove to be a valuable resource when preparing for GCSE examinations in Year 11.
