Courses in Partnership with Schools
We have developed curriculums in partnership with a number of independent schools across the UK specifically for extra-curricular courses. These courses endeavour to introduce and expand on the ICT units that are taught in schools.
Our classes are ‘dynamic and fun’ and spark an interest in technology. We aim to teach kids and teenagers real world and practical examples of projects they can develop by expanding on their knowledge of computer science, i.e. website projects and mobile application development. Since we very much focus on practical and ‘fun’ applications of the technology subjects, children and teenagers tend to find our lessons very engaging and complement any existing knowledge.
We have qualified tutors located across the UK and Ireland. All CodeIsCool tutors hold a valid DBS statement (formerly the CRB check) and public liability insurance. We also request that a teacher from the school is present at all lessons.
If you are interested in learning more about our CodeIsCool extra curricular tutors or franchising our curriculum programs for your existing ICT teachers, please contact us today.

HTML & CSS
HTML is the core of a website. HTML allows you to create websites. CSS is a way to “style” your site over many pages in a standard way.
"I really enjoyed the app development course. I have a few ideas for apps and I'm really excited to start building them! I'm still learning all the time but I definitely understand the basics now and I feel like I have a great platform to work from!"− Steven, 14, London
"I did the website development course and it really helped with the computer classes I had been doing at school. What we do in school is quite boring but on the course I learnt how to create fun websites and add cool features. It really made website development fun and I love being able to see my creations come to life! I feel like I could already charge people for my web services but I am still a bit too young for that!"− Carrie, 15, London
"I sent my nine year old to the game building with Scratch course. He still hasn't stopped talking about how much fun he had and loves 'programming' on it now. I think he gets bored in school as he is quite smart compared to his peers but the course really seemed to feed his intellect and get him started with programming. I know he will be a little whizz in no time!"− Marie, London (parent)
