Code Club provides free projects and resources for you to run a Code Club for children aged 9-13 in your school.
You don’t need to have coding knowledge to run a club. Using our step-by-step project guides is a great way to learn skills and build coding confidence for both you and your students!
You can choose to run the club by yourself, or if you’d like some help, you can connect with Code Club volunteers in your local area through our website.
Code Club essentials:
Step 1: Register your school on our website.
Step 2: Search for volunteers near you using the tool on our site. You could also ask parents or people in your local community to help.
Step 3: Meet your volunteers to organise the club and check their DBS statement (or equivalent).
Step 4: Get your club activated! Just log in to your Club Hub and add volunteers to your club using their email address.
Step 5: Use the free Code Club projects, which are step-by-step guides for the children to follow, to run the club sessions.
Step 6: Check out the extra resources for active clubs in your Club Hub.
If you’d like to run the club without a volunteer, make sure to select this option when you sign up so that your club will be activated.
"It’s amazing to see the sense of achievement the children get when they finish their projects… and we can really see the children starting to persevere with the tasks in Code Club, using analytical thinking to troubleshoot."
- Matthew Cave, Assistant Head Teacher, West Town Lane Academy Bristol
