ComputerXplorers were a delight to work with. From the first time we had contact, they were very professional, knowledgeable and thorough in managing our requirements. They were able to offer a variety of activities that covered both the current and new computing curriculum. Preparation for sessions was excellent with ComputerXplorers liaising with our technical support department to ensure software and equipment worked properly on our system. They also collaborated with staff and provided us with planning that showed links to the curriculum that incorporated flexibility and tailoring of sessions where necessary and suitably challenging. The children loved the sessions and saw real life application. The lessons promoted team work and problem solving skills too. Staff have also been able to develop their knowledge and understanding of computing. I would recommend ComputerXplorers to anyone Read Less

Our children thoroughly enjoyed their time working with Fran and the equipment she brought into school. They were engaged in their learning, and made a great deal of progress in their Computing skills. It was great to see them all using coding skills with a real purpose! As well as the technical learning that happened, children also developed greater teamwork and reasoning skills. We look forward to working with Computer Xplorers again in the future. Read Less

Over the past few years, ComputerXplorers have provided Abbeymead Primary School with a range of excellent services. Their after school clubs have proved popular and the children always look forward to the team coming into assembly to tell them about new, upcoming clubs. We have also used ComputerXplorers to provide curriculum CPD to our staff through staff meetings, INSET and modelled lessons. It is a pleasure to work with such a flexible, reliable company."

Not only has the standard of pupils' work improved 100%, staff are increasingly confident in their teaching using a wide range of software. Pupils across Early Years, KS1 and KS2 can now demonstrate their skills using programmes such as Scratch and Moviemaker. They can post blogs,write wiki pages and contribute to web sites. Also, I must mention your excellent work for the Titan Technology Day. The pupils' presentations using Crazytalk and Newsmaker were fantastic - and they enjoyed every minute of it. I'm so glad that Anglesey's relationship with ComputerXplorers is set to continue next year- and have no doubt at all that, with your support we can achieve national recognition of excellence in our ICT work. A really great job! Thank you. Read Less

As educators part of our role is to prepare children for the future. Although we do not know what the future will look like we can make the assumption that technology is going to play a huge part in most careers. Focusing on the teaching of programming and coding is our way of helping our children prepare for that future. Plus children love it and are much more adaptable to technology than adults. Having specialist days to promote programming only demonstrates its importance in the curriculum. Read Less

ComputerXplorers has been running a co curricular club at Beachborough for two years now. It is extremely popular with the children as it is fun, relevant and up to date with the opportunities it offers. It has supported our Computing curriculum and is led by knowledgeable staff who guide the children well. ComputerXplorers also interacts with the parents, keeping them informed of the topics covered and providing ways they can work with their child. We can highly recommend ComputerXplorers, it is a definite hit here at Beachborough and I know it will go on being so! Read Less

The children at St. Thomas of Canterbury love their weekly visits to ICT Club where they are met with an enthusiastic teacher ready to inspire their imaginative minds. It is so popular that our current animation course was so oversubscribed we already have a whole new class for the summer term! The children look forward to the club each week and some even come to remind me that it is on! They learn new skills each week through fun targeted activities and are always eager to share their new discoveries with each other Read Less

ComputerXplorers extra-curricular computer clubs are extremely well attended and enjoyed by all who take part. We have been very impressed with the professional approach of the tutor. Activities are well planned, the software is of a high quality and support is provided depending on the children's needs. We only need provide the room and pupils receive a very productive after-school activity. We would highly recommend ComputerXplorers to other primary schools. Read Less

The children thoroughly enjoyed working with 'ComputerXplorers' and had a very successful interactive morning (Y4) / afternoon (Y5) learning many new ICT skills. The projects the children completed were linked closely to the curriculum and a topic area that the children were focusing on - The Tudors for Y4 and Water Aid for Y5 (the exact themes were set by the teachers at the school so that the team could then fine tune their delivery on the day). All children were actively involved throughout the session and enjoyed every second. The teacher who led the session was organised and explained each step thoroughly and had a high level of competence in ICT. As a one-off session the enjoyment and skills received by the children was worth everybody's hard work. We did like NewsMaker and the children loved filming themselves and seeing themselves on screen!! Read Less

Just a quick big thank you for yesterday's inset. I have spoken to a few teachers and they all loved it. They commented that it was really enjoyable and how engrossed they got in to programming.

ComputerXplorers has transformed our ICT teaching. They came to run workshops with our Year 1’s and 2’s. They linked the experience to our topics and opened up an amazing world of animation or webcam storyboards to the children which were incredibly exciting. It was a day of ICT teaching at its best. It not only helped staff deliver an ICT lesson it allowed them to assess the topic learning already acquired whilst witnessing the use of new software. There were only two downsides to this experience – the first that we hadn’t allowed enough time for each class to really benefit from the session and secondly we don’t have either of them on our staff! We have already booked more sessions and suddenly the fun is back in ICT. We have also booked them for Reception, to run an After School Club and to support staff with some Inset training which probably tells you how successful the day was. Read Less

ComputerXplorers has successfully run our extra-curricular computer clubs in both the Infant and Junior Departments for the last 8 months. The clubs are extremely well attended and enjoyed by all who take part. ComputerXplorers offers our pupils the opportunity to develop their ICT skills and creativity through units of study it would be difficult for us to offer as part of the standard ICT curriculum. The clubs also involve a high degree of challenge and breadth of curriculum which forms part of the provision for our gifted and talented learners. Pupils also have the opportunity to use a wide range of software and hardware we do not have available to us in school. The assemblies at the start of the year thoroughly engage and motivate the pupils (and staff) and give a good demonstration of the programmes on offers for the coming term. We look forward to our continued work with ComputerXplorers. Read Less

Thank you very much for the workshops, they all went very well in terms of resources, instructions and what the children were able to achieve at the end of it all. It was amazing, exciting and incredibly easy for the children to achieve at their own levels. I would like on behalf of our headteacher, who was extremely pleased with the outcomes and the rest of the staff and children, say a massive thank you. Certainly my class, and I am sure all the other classes enjoyed the sessions. Read Less
