I would like my child to attend a Code Club
If you would like to find a club for your child to attend you can use the search bar below. Many Code Clubs are run in schools and therefore only open to pupils, but there are also lots of Code Club’s in libraries and community centres that your child could join.
Tell your school about Code Club
If you’d like a Code Club to start in your child’s school, try chatting to some other parents and see if they sound interested, then get a meeting with your school’s head teacher so you can explain why it is so important to your child and how it will help the school.
Volunteer at your child's school
Lots of parents run Code Clubs at their child's school. You don't have to be a coding genius to get a Code Club started. You just need to be enthusiastic, know one end of a mouse from the other and be willing to learn alongside the children.
