An overview of who we are, what we do and why

About us - in a nutshell

Our children love to play computer games, use the internet, and engage with desktop and mobile devices, but parents know how distracting and addictive they can be. Our aim is to transform children from being users of games and websites .. into creators. We do this with activities that support and complement the new national Computing curriculum.

Fun & educational

The Pixel Gang was started to address parents concerns about their childrens use of phones, tablets, laptops and gaming consoles. Our fun computer club activities for children harness your child's enthusiasm, and channel it towards the development of creative, analytical and technical skills that will give them a head start in their school work, creative projects and future careers.

Our activities motivate and inspire learning by teaching subjects that children are genuinely interested in. Making a game, building a website or producing a video is rewarding, educational and above all fun.

The new national Computing curriculum

Primary and junior schools are facing huge challenges in delivering the government's new Computing curriculum, which replaced the old ITC subjects in Sept 2014. Our activities support and complement the new curriculum by focusing on computational thinking and programming, games and website coding, and creating digital content such as images, music and video. The skills and knowledge we teach will help ensure your child is top of the class.

Developing skills for secondary school

By the time our children reach secondary school, the move to all digital work-flows will be well underway. Having studied with us, your child will arrive for their first day equipped with essential knowledge and skills, to help them create, present and share their work.

Future careers

Almost all businesses uses digital media. Many jobs expect young people to be not only computer literate, but have advanced creative and design skills. Our activities are the perfect start to ensure your child is equipped for the digital workplace.
