Upper Primary Computing

The benefits of studying Primary Computing

Our Primary Computing homeschooling course covers the requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over the course of 4 years. Children who have no prior experience in the subject will need to begin at Year 3, whatever their age.

Building on the principles of information and computation, your child will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing ensures that children become digitally literate. They will be able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology. They will be able to do so at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Everything about the Wolsey Hall Oxford programme; from the easy to follow daily lessons, the extra online resources provided, to our fantastic Progress Manager and wonderful Tutors who are just an email away if we need help, have all made our homeschooling adventure the best decision we ever made for our family.
