Computer Science and ICT


We believe that every student at Hayes School should be able to use a variety of industry standard software and hardware. As such, the students at Hayes study a range of applications using standard desktops and software, including Office and the Adobe creative suite. Students use a range of coding software including Kodu, Scratch, App inventor, Python, VBnet, C++ and Javascript.
