Weclome to the Digital School House

The Digital Schoolhouse London Programme aims to develop a new generation of Computing teachers to teach the new Computing curriculum which started on 1 September 2014.

Funded by the Mayor of London, each Digital Schoolhouse is based in a secondary school and aims to work with a growing network of local primary 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

  • Secondary school teachers are trained by universities
  • Free and flexible workshops are provided for visiting Key Stage 2 primary schools
  • A local network is created, linking primary schools to the secondary hub
  • All teachers are supported to develop new ideas and resources through a London-wide network, called Get London Computing.

By providing continued support through ongoing hub and CPD events as well as direct contact to a specialist secondary school teacher, the project aims to upskill and inspire primary school teachers across London 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.
