The students can choose to do computers or any other technical subject. The school offers IGCSE 0478 Paper 1 and Paper 2. The Cambridge IGCSE Computer Studies syllabus enables candidates to develop an interest in computing and gain confidence in the use of computers. Candidates develop an appreciation of the broad range of computer applications, in order to improve their understanding of the power and versatility of the computer and the benefits of its use, but also its limitations and potential disadvantages. Cambridge IGCSE Computer studies is an ideal foundation for further study at A Level, and the skills learnt can also be used in other areas of study and in everyday life.
IGCSE
 A or AS level
The aim of the Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science syllabus is to develop an understanding of how computers are used to solve a wide range of problems. Learners investigate a variety of different computers, and also look at the ways that computers are organized in terms of software, data, hardware, communications and people. Learners develop the skills necessary to apply their understanding to the development of computer-based solutions. As they progress, they learn about the main principles of systems analysis and design, looking at different methods of problem formulation, and the planning of solutions. They also consider systematic methods of solution implementation, testing and documentation.
