Welcome to the Digital Schoolhouse
The Digital Schoolhouse Programme uses play-based learning to engage the next generation of pupils and teachers with the new Computing curriculum (which began on 1st September 2014).
Digital Schoolhouse is delivered by the UK games industry trade body Ukie, and powered by PlayStation®, and was originally seed funded by the Mayor of London’s Schools Excellence Fund (LSEF). Each Digital Schoolhouse is based in a school, college or university and aims to work with a growing network of local primary and secondary teachers to deliver creative and cross-curricular computing lessons. Through this, we support the new Computing Programme of Study for the National Curriculum in a way that leaves pupils and teachers feeling inspired and engaged.

This is how it works
- Digital Schoolhouse Lead Teachers are trained by universities
- Free and flexible workshops are provided for visiting schools
- Free resources and personalised support programme are offered to the visiting teachers to help them embed computing in their own schools
- A local network is created, linking schools together
By providing continued support through ongoing hub and CPD events as well as direct contact to a specialist Digital Schoolhouse teacher, the project aims to upskill and inspire visiting teachers across the country to deliver the new Computing Programmes of Study. Computing is lots of fun, for both the pupils and the teachers. Through this project we aim to encourage and promote that message.
