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.
come back to us after their first course. Perhaps because we leave no stone unturned to make our courses fun.
would recommend us to other parents. We take a genuine interest in the long-term learning of your child.
If your child is not learning enough or not having fun, you can have your money back. You be the judge.
Aim of the class
Get a true understanding of what it's like to be in one of our classes
Inspire others and get inspired by ideas from the group
Solve problems in a structured way, develop critical reasoning, logical thinking and gain creative confidence
And, of course, learn how to code
Requirements & Setup
A laptop or desktop computer with an active internet connection
A microphone and speakers and camera for video calling
iPads or other tablets will not work
You might need to install some software before the trial 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
