CODing Courses for Primary School students

Whether you want to learn to code or hone in on your existing skills - The Academy of Code delivers fun focused coding classes for all levels of ability.

Depending on the student’s age and experience they will get to try some or all of the below:

  • Scratch - a fantastic introductory language, especially for younger students

  • Processing - a Java-based graphical language. The basis for most of our term-time courses, and a fantastic introduction to coding (students who have studied at the Academy of Code previously will get the chance to work on advanced Processing projects)

  • HTML/CSS - learn to build and edit websites using HTML and CSS

  • Lego Mindstorms, Python, Arduino and more

coding courses for secondary school students

Our secondary school coding classes are aimed at 13 to 19-year-old students and is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for what a 3rd level course in computer science is like. 

The primary teaching language at the Academy of Code is Processing, a Java-based language frequently used at third level institutions for computer science introductory courses. Students will get a chance to experience this and other technologies.

For students who are already passionate about computing, or for those who are just interested in seeing what programming is all about, these classes are the perfect way to dip a toe in the water, and maybe take a first step towards a career in the most exciting and dynamic industry around!


This Student is learning to code his robot using a micro:bit.  Did you know that a micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer 70 times smaller and 18 times faster than the original  BBC Micro  computers used in schools. It has 25 red LED lights that can flash messages and be used to create games.
