Price: from £199

Ages: 11 - 17 years

6 students to a teacher

Easter, May half term


Week-long Camp

Mon to Fri - 9 am to 12 pm

Mon to Fri - 1 pm - 4 pm

This course introduces your child to a very advanced, yet easy to learn programming languages – Python. It’s safe to say that many apps we use today have been built using Python – Instagram Web, Netflix, YouTube, to name a few! This course teaches the fundamentals of coding, and creates a solid foundation to solve more complex real-life problems.

Choose this course if your child is new to Python or has done a few hours of Python before. Or, they have a good understanding of block-based platforms like Scratch, and would like to start exploring text-based programming languages.

One of the best things I learned this week – NEVER GIVE UP! I kept getting better and better through the course.

What you will learn

  • Learn the fundamental concepts of Computer Programming and have fun with it


  • Have the confidence to build cool games and other useful software using Python


  • Learn to design and develop modular software


  • Solve problems in a structured way, develop critical reasoning, logical thinking and gain creative confidence

Requirements & Setup

  • A laptop or desktop computer with an active internet connection

  • A microphone and speakers. Ideally, you should also have a camera - a webcam or an inbuilt camera in your laptop) for video calling, although this is not necessary.

  • If you are on the Python course, you will need to install Python on your computer, so you need the permissions to install software on your computer.

Python FAQs

Q: I want to know more. How can I get in touch?

We will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Please feel free to call us at +44-75398-90926 or email us at learn@rivalearning.com or simply "Contact Us" at the bottom of our homepage.



Q: How many teachers would you have in a class?

We aim for 6 students per teacher to maximise both learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.



Q: I get coding. What is Python?

Python is a text based programming language that is widely used today in the most successful tech companies such as Google, Netflix and Facebook. In fact, YouTube and Instagram have been written in Python.


While there are many other programming languages such as Java, C and C++, Python is probably the easiest to pick up and yet among the most powerful.



Q: What are the pre-requisites for the course?

Not much, apart from being curious. And oh, did we tell you that you really don't have to be a genius to learn how to code. Especially in Python.



Q: I already know C/C++/Java. Is this course relevant for me?

Absolutely. You will learn how to code in Python and appreciate how powerful it is. It's a great tool to have in your arsenal. Having said that, if you are already a Java/C/C++ expert, then you should really join our highly-tailored weekly Python classes, instead of our camps.



Q: Do you have a Java course?

Not yet and at the moment, it's not in the works either. That's not to say Java is not fun. Python, in our opinion, is superior in many ways and the language of choice.



Q: Do I need to know Scratch? I already know Scratch

Scratch is not a requirement, but if you already know Scratch, you will absolutely love Python and its power. A text based programming language such as Python is the logical next step from Scratch.



Q: Should I rather start with Scratch?

Different students have different learning styles. Scratch is a visual programming language designed to teach kids how to code, so it might be more suitable for you. Once you have learned Scratch, you can always move on to Python, which is used more widely and not just as an educational tool.
