Jason Pitt

Head of Computer Science

I graduated from the University of Birmingham, with a degree in Computer Science and Software Engineering. After completing my PGCE, I started my teaching career in Birmingham including six years as Head of Department at King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys.

I joined Fettes in January 2017 and have found it a thoroughly rewarding place to work. The students are enthusiastic and it is exciting to teach a subject where there are so many opportunities to help them pursue their interests be it through website design, programming apps, making video games or exploring robotics.

I also carry out work for an exam board designing and assessing qualifications and have written several Computer Science textbooks.

I'm an enthusiast about all forms of technology ranging from the latest gadgets to 'retro' computers. Outside of work have enjoyed exploring Edinburgh with my family and two dogs.
