The Academy of Code was founded in 2014 by a group of software developers who believed that everyone should have the opportunity to develop technical skills, either to prepare them for further education or just to give them the digital skills to thrive in the 21st century no matter what career they choose.

We deliver an immersive curriculum, which offers students a pathway to build their skills year on year. In our experience, exposure to full programming languages such as Java and Python leads to better learning outcomes which include transferable skills such as computational thinking, creative problem solving and enhanced collaboration.

We believe in giving every student the opportunity and support to stretch and progress their subject knowledge at their pace, while keeping a focus on the core learning outcomes. Our curriculum is built with differentiated instruction at its core.


1/ Understanding code will help you to learn the basic inner workings of computers. A sound understanding of code will set you up for a lifetime of successful use of technology no matter what career you pursue.

2/ Improved computational thinking which includes the ability to communicate in a structured and logical way, as well as problem solving in a methodical fashion.

3/ Improved creativity which allows you to think in a more “out of the box” way in a wide range of different situations. From your understanding of code you will understand that there is a logical beginning, progression, and ending in every story or situation.

4/ Greater access to the job market. Most jobs now require basic IT skills whether in retail, hospitality, technical or professional jobs. Coding specialists are well-paid and highly sought-after in all sectors of the job market.

These classes offer a strong foundation in coding through the Java-based Processing framework. Future terms will offer the opportunity to expand into other languages such as Python, HTML, CSS and Javascript, while building a deep foundation of coding knowledge from which to progress that student’s coding journey.

Coding languages catered for: Depending on prior coding experience: Processing, HTML, Python, Javascript, or Scratch.
