We are extremely pleased to report that this week MGGS was awarded the new National Centre for Computing Education’s Computing Quality Mark for delivering high quality computing education and the digital skills young people will need for their future. We are in the first 20 secondary schools in the country to be awarded this mark. To achieve this we had to submit evidence which was reviewed by BCS (The chartered institute for IT) on 8 different areas: Vision, Leadership, Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Staff Development, Careers Education, SEND & Diversity and Outcomes.
Claire Garside, senior lead facilitator at the NCCE, said; “Congratulations to Maidstone Grammar School for Girls, on becoming an NCCE ‘Computing Quality Mark’ school! They’re among the schools leading the way to deliver high standards in computing education. The Computing Quality Mark recognises the quality of their provision to ensure all students receive the computing skills and knowledge so valuable for today and in their future careers.”
Huge congratulations to Team Computing & Team Computing Hub for making this possible!
