Club members work through the free projects we provide, which are step-by-step guides that will help them create games, animations, and web pages. The Club’s leader is on hand to support, encourage, and help the young people.

If your children are being home-educated and they would like to attend a Code Club, you can search our website for a public club that has spaces available using the search tool found on our homepage. Alternatively, your children can complete the projects on our projects site at home.
Clubs can start at any point during the year. If you’re running a Code Club in a library or other community venue, feel free to also have sessions during school holidays or at weekends.
