We love Python and in this course, we promise you will start feeling its true power too as you solve real life problems using Python. From building games, to using live data from the internet to plotting graphs, this course has it all.

It's so satisfying when you are able to download stuff from the internet without clicking!

E, Year 8

What you will learn

  • Apply fundamental concepts of Computer Programming to solve real-life problems


  • Learn advanced techniques and design thinking as you build your own cool games and do what the pros do at Google and Netflix


  • 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: What are the prerequisites for the course?

Well, you must be very comfortable with variables, input and 'if' conditionals. Ideally, you should also understand how loops (while and for) work, but don't worry if you don't.


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 leave a message here.


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

We aim for no more than 8 students per teacher to maximise 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: 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: 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.
