Welcoming you back to our in-person camps this summer!
We can’t wait to welcome you back to our in-person camps this summer! You can book with full peace of mind. We are putting in place rigorous measures to safeguard your family’s health and wellbeing on camps, including evidence of a negative test result within the last 48 hours for all students. And, if we are forced to cancel these courses, you will receive credit, a refund or a simple transfer to our online courses running all summer - it’s up to you.
If there is not camp available in your area, we recommend our online courses, now available worldwide.
Teen Coding with Python – On Campus
Teen Python Programming Course
Get familiar with Python, one of the most widely-used and widely-taught programming languages in senior schools, universities and businesses, and learn to code from the ground up.
Teen Coding with Python – On Campus
For online courses: these require you to have a capable computer to work on and a broadband internet connection. Most PC/Mac computers from the last 5 years will be fine but you can view our recommended detailed system requirements here. For on campus courses: laptops are provided for all junior courses, as well as Music, Unity, Creative Design & YouTube senior courses. Laptop rental is available for all other senior courses (£50 extra).
What you learn
Unlock your inner software engineer with a course that teaches you the skills to understand, create and debug like a pro. This course will also show you how to apply those skills through various projects and challenges.
Get ahead at school
A popular choice for students taking GCSE or A Level Computer science. Learn the fundamentals of modern coding including data types, variables, functions, loops and object oriented programming. This course covers all of the coding elements of the GCSE and most of those included in the A levels.
The bigger picture
Fire Tech's tech-savvy, enthusiastic tutors will teach you the programming language behind tech behemoths like Facebook, Netflix and Spotify. Students learn the skills to become problem solvers and creators with the one of the most popular coding languages.

The topics covered in the Teen Coding with Python course cover the equivalent to what your child would do at GCSE and some A-level. This means unless your child is working on A-level Python they will likely not have studied all the topics on this course.
In addition to that the course is project based so the students get to apply the knowledge to something practical which gives them a much better grasp of the concepts than purely theory.
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.
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.
