Course Overview

Learn one of the most in-demand coding languages in the world, used in start-ups, enterprise companies, and academic institutions. This is a top choice for students studying Computer Science for their GCSEs who want to take their skills to the next level in a fun and supportive environment.

Our code-loving instructors develop your programming proficiency by teaching you how to use variables, integers, floats, strings, loops, file I/O’s and data structures, as you work on your own challenge-focused projects. You will leave with the confidence to use the Python programming language independently.

While this is a beginners’ course, we do find that many teens who have already started to learn to program on their own find our “back to basics” approach very helpful as they fill in any gaps in their fundamentals.

For details of how this course covers the coding components of GCSE Computing, download the mapping grid here. Students will also cover topics such as Object-Oriented Programming and Creating GUIs which they often won’t encounter until they study Computer Science at A-Level or beyond.

This course is also available in part-time and online formats.

What your child will learn

  • Introduction to common Python programming environments
  • Core coding principles including variables, loops, if statements, and functions
  • Advanced coding methods including Object Oriented Programming (OOP)
  • Create and interact with common data structures
  • Import and use third-party libraries to add powerful new features including graphical components
  • Programming Design Patterns and how to make reusable code
  • Equip students to debug their code and work out how to help themselves when they run into problems.
