At Code Playground, we believe in empowering people through digital literacy. Together, we can make learning to code easier for everyone, including teachers, parents and students. We want to give them access to the resources and support they need to get to grips with the computing curriculum – in one handy location. Then backing it up with hands-on guidance when and where it’s needed. Whether that’s in the classroom, online, or both.

Join interactive live classes, use free online resources, access detailed lesson plans or a book a school visit with one of our Barclays Digital Eagles. Here you'll find everything you need to bring coding to life in your classroom.

We've worked with schools across the country to help everyone get the most out of the computing curriculum. It's all about passing on our passion for coding to teachers, students and parents alike.

Find out more about what coding could do for your children.

Not only did the boys both code their own game, but the Digital Eagles explained it to them and to both me and Dad in a way we could understand, so that we could help the kids if we needed to.
