My child will not be nine years old at the start of the course- can they still attend?

We can only welcome children into our stand alone camps and courses who will be nine by the first day of the course.  Unfortunately we do not have any flexibility for this particular limit.

Course Overview

On this club kids aged 9 to 12 will be introduced to Python, the programming language that tech behemoths like Instagram, Pinterest and Spotify are all built on.

Led by our code-loving instructors, kids and teens will be taught key programming concepts and how to apply them in exciting ways, from using Python to create video games to learning the relationship between software and hardware, discovering the role of Python in the multi-billion-dollar tech industry to learning the skills they need to build their own projects at home.

Challenging, interactive and lots of fun, this course does more than just teach the fundamentals. It unlocks the world of programming for young people – and sparks the interest that makes them want to keep on exploring it.

Each weekly session runs for 2hrs on Saturday or Sunday (depending on the venue), for 5 or 10 consecutive sessions.

"All the staff were amazing and really helpful. This course really boosted my confidence with computers and video game design. It was really fun and I made a lot of friends I'll be sorry to say goodbye to. Writing the coding was even more fun than playing the games."
