Its memberships is diverse, including teachers at over 500 schools across the UK, exam boards, industry, universities, professional societies, as well as parents and governors. CAS seeks to work at many levels, including directly supporting Computing/ICT teachers, as well advocacy at a national policy level. It has been heavily involved in the Royal Society Call for Evidence on Computing in Schools, as well as contributing to the recent National Curriculum Review in England.

When & Where
Computing At School (CAS) aims to promote the teaching of Computing at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being “turned off” computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school.
The Computing At School group (CAS) is a grass roots organisation, whose energy, creativity, and leadership comes from its members. CAS is a collaborative partner with the BCS through the BCS Academy of Computing, and has formal support from other industry partners. Membership is open to everyone, and is very broad, including teachers, parents, governors, exam boards, industry, professional societies, and universities. We speak for the discipline of computing at school level, inc. FE, and not for any particular interest group.
