Headington Oxford (Ages 13-16)


Coding is a course designed for students aged between 13 and 16 years old who wish to develop their English language proficiency, alongside their ability to code websites, databases, and games. In an increasingly technological world, understanding and developing digital language is a key part of every business’s marketing plan.

Along with being a platform for web development, Coding is also the foundation of the gaming industry – an industry that is now larger than the movie and music industries combined.

What You’ll Learn

Coding introduces students to many aspects of coding, including studying coding languages (Python, HTML, CSS and Javascript). Students will both learn the language needed to understand this study and explore the practical applications of these languages in website and game design. Students will take part in fun and creative projects, involving programming micro:bits, designing web pages and creating games using GameMaker Pro. Working on these projects gives students lots of chances to use their English creatively and to learn new ways to express themselves and their ideas effectively.
