Coding Club

This introduction to coding is the ideal way to equip your child with brand new coding and computer skills, and develop positive computing habits.

We start children on their coding journey with the block-based language Scratch. This allows children to learn key coding concepts without being distracted by tricky typing.

Using our award-winning curriculum, focusing on creativity and practical coding applications, we will lead the class through a series of tutorials, looking at key parts of block-based coding to create animations, games, and more. Children will come away having learnt something new, having created something unique, and having had fun! 

Senior Coding

This club introduces children to a platform called ‘Bitsbox’. It’s a great introductory format for JavaScript as it allows children to learn about the intricacies of text-based coding languages easily. 

In this club, students will learn about the differences between Scratch and Bitsbox by working on their own Bitsbox projects. They’ll build apps, program an interactive quiz, and create their own Angry Birds game. Students will gain important computer literacy skills, learn simple JavaScript concepts, and create their own original work.

Junior Robotics Club

This hands-on club lets children explore the practical application of technology through a series of imaginative projects and challenges. Through interactive exercises and working on their own creative projects, students will develop an understanding of the animation process from start to finish. Students will explore a variety of different filmmaking and storytelling techniques, such as claymation, istopmation, Scratch animation and green screen. They will learn how to storyboard, create their own characters and build animated storylines through the medium of each of these animation styles. Plus, students will learn all about robotics and engineering as they complete projects using Dashbots, a robotics kit designed especially for children to get to grips with programming and sensors.
