Why is coding so important?
Coding is the language that we use to talk to computers and tell them what to do. It drives the software in every device, phone and camera – but you’ll find it in everyday household appliances too. Coding is part of the national curriculum too, and learning what makes tech tick could give your kids a head start in the world of work.
Give them a helping hand by bringing them along to a coding session with our Digital Eagles – experts who’ll guide your children as they take on fun challenges that introduce them to the basics of coding.
Learn to code with us
It’s a really fun way to learn the basics and develop digital skills for the future.
"Not only did the boys both code their own game, but the Digital Eagles explained it to them and to both me and Dad in a way we could understand, so that we could help the kids if we needed to."

“I've often floundered when we've been doing lessons on Scratch. This session helped my understanding and I feel I may be able to offer some help to our pupils now when they ask a question.”

“My class are all converted, we came back to the suite this afternoon for another ICT session and they all had another go at scratch just playing around and having a go at trying to move sprites around to get them to say things and finding out for themselves what they could do.”
Teacher, ICT Lead, Runnymede School
