What we do

So much more than a computer club

ComputerXplorers offers a huge range of computing classes for children using an extensive variety of software programs and computer peripherals combined with our own unique curriculum and lesson plans.

Working in a variety of settings across Bristol, Bath, Trowbridge and Weston-Super-Mare - from pre-schools to schools and after school clubs, as well as hospitals, family learning community venues, science festivals, museums and anywhere children gather - ComputerXplorers delivers programmes that are both educationally rewarding and enormous fun for children - so much more than a 'computer club'.

Our programmes are always engaging, educational and, most importantly, lots of fun!

COVID-19 Support for Schools and Children

The potential impact of the Coronavirus pandemic is of concern to everyone. We wanted to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of the children we work with and those of our staff is the highest priority for us.

We love sharing our excitement about the world of technology with all of the children in our classes and we are working hard to continue to share that in whatever way we can. Whether that is working with schools to provide COVID-secure clubs (find out more here) and classes or by delivering classes online we are committed to keeping the tech excitement alive!
