In this trial class, you will join one of our regular classes appropriate for your child's age. It is a group class and the others in the group might be regular students and not trialling. So, you will get a real experience of what it's like to attend one of our term-time classes - usually one where you have a lot of fun and learn loads.

If your child is 11 years or more, they might attend a Python class. It’s safe to say that many apps we use today have been built using Python – Instagram Web, Netflix, YouTube, to name a few! The full beginner's course teaches the fundamentals of coding, and creates a solid foundation to solve more complex real-life problems.

If your child is between 8 - 12 years old, they might attend a Scratch class. In our view, Scratch is one of the best educational coding platforms there is for younger kids.

Liam, 13 years
My son loved this course. This has sparked his interest and got him thinking about lots of coding ideas. Very communicative teacher.
Marco, Liam's dad
F, Age 11
I loved it. The teacher was very patient and willing to help but made sure you tried to figure things out on your own.
M, Age 13
I loved making projects from real-life like the COVID-19 case predictor, so cool!​
Elina, 8 years
I have never seen my daughter so excited coming out of the sessions, to show me what she built

FAQs

What are the pre-requisites for this class?

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.

My child already knows a bit of coding, is this trial class right for them?

Sure, the aim of the class is to give your child a true expereince of what it is like to be in one of our classes. Even if they already know a little bit of coding, we are hoping that the class will still be fun and they will come out learning a bit more than what they already knew.

How many teachers would you have in a class?

We will have no more than 6 students per teacher, ideally between 4 and 6, to maximise both learning through collaboration with peers and personal attention from the teacher.

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.

Where can I find out more about Scratch itself?

Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. The MIT Scratch website has a lot of information and resources about Scratch. There's also a page for parents.

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