This club is aimed for more experienced coders and teaches complex programming principles by encouraging students to write unique code more independently. Students use computer programming to create their own artworks, games, and animations. They develop their problem solving and debugging skills while also exploring mathematical and scientific principles in more detail.
This coding club introduces students to more advanced programming environments. Students are taught the fundamentals of programming in a fun and creative way and get to make their own art, games, and apps.
Through a series of coding projects that appeal to everyone from game designers and artists to serious computing enthusiasts, we teach students all about coding, allowing them to create games, apps and various art projects.
This club encourages students to explore text-based languages in more detail. They are encouraged to write their own code, recognise faulty codes and problem-solve their projects, and gain an understanding in complex computer programming techniques.
This class is open to a range of abilities from beginners to more advanced programmers.
Being able to program computers is a skill essential to success in the world of the future. Not only is it a critical skill but it is a creative endeavour which teaches problem solving and analytical thinking. The younger children learn to code and the more practice they gain, the more fluent they will become in 'computational thinking' and the better their chance is to excel.
This course compliments the National Computing Curriculum and helps student develop skills that will guarantee an advantage for their GCSEs.
Students develop knowledge in the following topics:
- Intermediate coding concepts: loops, variables, conditionals and functions
- Mathematical concepts: coordinates, angles, and operations
- Robotics: using input and output device
- Electronics concepts: resistance, voltage, and current
- Games development
- Program design
- Fundamentals of P5.js
- App development
- Writing and debugging complex code

As with learning any language, coding requires a lot of time and repetition. We always prepare new content and recommend joining the club next term.
