My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the coding session on Saturday and my husband was very impressed by the set-up.Nathalie had a lot of input from Gisela and Su who both had a great rapport with the girls, such that when Nathalie returned home, she wished to continue with the website design.

Thank you very much for encouraging such an important skill in such a fun and engaging environment.


Saoirse had a ball, flew the flag for England and won runner up in the Games category.  Success!  She’s delighted and we are very proud.   Also presented on the big stage (and roped in her cousin as PR and Comms for her team!).   

Thanks guys for encouraging her to get to this point!
