Our aim is to support schools, both in London and globally, to provide outstanding and fun computing education.
Find activities for learning about Computer Science in fun ways on this site (see the menus above). Read fun stories about Computer Science research, history, diversity, news and more on our sister cs4fn blog site.

Teaching London Computing supports Computing teachers in London and beyond (we hope our resources help you where ever you are) providing workshops and free classroom resources. It is a resource Hub for CAS London: the Computing at School Regional Centre.
We provide resources and workshops, and help teachers to do the same. Those who use them then share them with other teachers so spreading the understanding and reinforcing the learning. Other teachers can provide a supportive environment to improve your understanding.
The best way to learn as a teacher is to teach other teachers!

Who are we?
Teaching London Computing is the sister site to cs4fn. It was originally set up by Paul Curzon, William Marsh, Peter W McOwan, Sue Sentance and Mary Webb as a partnership between Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London to provide support for teachers. It is now run by Paul Curzon.
We were originally provided funding through the London Schools Excellence Fund and the London Schools Excellence Legacy Fund from the Mayor of London and the Department for Education (2013-2017) and we work closely with Computing At School. More recently cs4fn as a whole is funded by EPSRC.
Google has in the past provided extra support for our work through their CS4HS programme.
We are also working with Hertford College, University of Oxford on Interdisciplinary Computing resources.
A range of our resources have been integrated in the national Tenderfoot programme training teachers, and used by the National Centre for Computing Education as well as a variety of other organisations.
