Computing KS3 at little canada for secondary schools

Practical computing

Real life applications of computing form the basis of this course, with pupils creatively interpreting aspects of their stay at PGL, such as logging and analysing data collected from on-site weather stations or designing a new adventure activity base.

As all our computing modules are hands-on, the course is a great way to make the subject relevant and enhance your pupils' understanding by putting theory into practice.


The PGL Adventure Bonus
Choose from our popular on-site adventure activities, such as zip wire, giant swing, trapeze, climbing and abseiling, to complement your study sessions and tailor-make your course to your requirements.
