Computer Science Beginner Courses for Kids

Computer science is a subject that is absolutely essential for kids. However, it is not always covered as well as it could be. Many UK schools are not set-up to teach tech skills as best they could, meaning more and more parents are now looking towards term time tuition for computer science beginner courses.

As the UK’s leading provider of kids coding courses and computer science lessons, we can offer beginner courses for children of all abilities.

Our cutting edge after school computer science lessons are designed for children aged 7 to 17. No matter where you live, your kid can take part.

With average class sizes of 4 and never more than 8, your child will learn computer science online with a live tutor in a totally interactive way. What’s more, it could actually lead on to your child taking a computer science GCSE or A Level early with us.

The curriculum, teaching methods and virtual learning environment we create for all our students produces exceptional results. In fact, In 2019, 100% of FunTech students achieved grades 7/8/9 at GCSE in Computer Science – the national average was 21.9%. At A Level, 100% of our students achieved either A* or A – the national average was 25.2% percent.
