By 2026, it’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of new jobs will be tech-focussed. Many of the children in our classes will be just starting their careers, and we want to make sure that they have the skills and confidence they need to succeed.
Using interactive and engaging coding projects, students build fluency and confidence in computing and develop their creativity and problem solving skills. Many of our Explorers use the course for the skills section of their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and often go on to take the Computing GCSE, inspired by their successes.
Students are introduced to key topics and begin immediately applying what they’re learning through mini activities - building confidence in their coding vocabulary.
Students move step-by-step through the creation of animations, games and applications from scratch, applying their knowledge in a variety of practical scenarios.
Students are given a coding challenge brief and some suggestions - the rest is up to them. They can be as imaginative as they like, while using the skills they've learned.
An hour and a half every Saturday for ten weeks (with a half term break). Students receive a certificate at the end of the course. They can bring a laptop or rent one from us for the term (£35).
If you refer a friend for a full term class, both bookings will receive a 10% discount. Further details can be found in the booking form.
If your child would like to try the class before committing to a full term, they can attend for two weeks on a trial ticket. They can bring a laptop or rent one from us for the fortnight (£8).
To ensure children get the best possible experience, we recommend that trials are only booked in the first few weeks of term. Any questions? Get in touch.
