Our Courses

Our courses are a place for children (and their parents) to learn, experiment and explore with code.

Our students create their own games, animations, films, music, art and robots. We help our students bring the products of their imagination to life.

We believe that understanding how coding and electronics work can transform your child’s future and empower them to be an innovator of tomorrow.

We work with a range of schools and have taught children as young as 5, all the way up to A-level. Some of the schools and educational bodies we have worked with include Wandsworth Council, Ealing Council, Sussex House, Wetherby School and Knightsbridge School.
