  • Yes. We provide light refreshments.
  • If your child has any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance.

Are the kids just working on computers all day?

  • When in the classroom - classes are certainly spent at the computer. However, it is important to know that the students are being creators of technology, not consumers. The computers are simply the tool for our students to learn, to collaborate, to design and to challenge each other.
  • We mix up their time between computers and offline activities (coding board games, educational games, theatre sports, arts and crafts etc). We have taken great care in creating a schedule that incorporates many aspects of learning. The students will be shown different ways in which they can relate to the technology.

How much does it cost?

  • Tech Camps cost £250 per child. After School Coding club is £50 per month

Will my child make their own app?

  • Yes. They will finish with one (or several) apps which can then be run on their iPhone or iPad (computer and Android too!).
  • They will create their own customised version of games they’re already familiar with such as Flappy Bird or Pong with a unique, shareable URL meaning anyone with access to the Internet can play it.

Does my child need to bring their own Laptop?

  • Yes, your child will need to bring their own laptop. Don't have one? We have a limited number of laptops that you can hire at just £10 per day.

Do the kids go outside during the day?

  • No. Sometimes we do have to drag the kids away from their computers as they are so enthralled in the new adventure they themselves are creating but we definitely do get the students to take a break in our building.
  • We have a great open space for them to meet and work with other students. (including bean bags to chill)

How many kids in the classroom?

  • The class sizes typically range from 10-12 students.
  • We have incredibly high teacher to student ratios: Usually one lead teacher and 2-4 teacher assistants (depending on number of students)
