Innovation and Computering Clubs

Animation Club

For the First and Second Year. Make your own Lego move! Create stop-motion animations using Lego, or indeed anything you want to bring in from home. Using portable green-screen studios and your iPad, you can set your animation against any backdrop to make any story you can imagine.

Code Club

For pupils in the First and Second Year. Learn a wide range of coding skills following all sorts of amazing projects before getting even more creative and inventing your own. You start with easy to follow, step-by-step guides which help you learn Scratch, HTML and CSS, and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow you to build your knowledge incrementally. 

Lego Mindstorms Robotics Club

For pupils in the First to Third Year. The ultimate lego challenge! Powerful Lego Mindstorms EV3 gives you the power to create and command your own robotic Lego creatures, vehicles, machines and inventions.

Lovelace Coding Club

The Lovelace Coding Club is looking for female participants who are eager to learn a bit more about the world of computer programming. Shockingly, studies have shown that the proportion of female programmers is between 10-20 per cent worldwide. In the UK only 17 per cent of employees in the tech sector are female. There are many theories as to why this may be the case, but a large factor is a lack of exposure in the right kind of learning environment.  

Pioneers

For Years 2 to 4 in which pupils are challenged to make something awesome using technology. Taking part is a chance to create something amazing, learn cool new skills along the way, and win some amazing prizes.

Problem Solving Club

This club is a chance to develop your engineering and team working skills. We meet each week to solve a new problem using limited materials. Working in small groups you may need to build the tallest tower using spaghetti, or design a machine for throwing teabags using drinking straws, or a device for moving paperclips without touching them. The club runs for about a term and culminates in our visit to the Surrey SATRO Problem Solving Challenge, where we compete against other schools. The club is suitable for any pupil from First to Upper Sixth. 

VEX Robotics

For Third to Fifth Year. With a kit of over 300 parts, design and build your own robot. Take your skills to the next level with these incredible kits where the only limitation is your own imagination. Start with a basic Clawbot and write programs to control it. From there on you are in charge. You can even use CAD and 3D printing to make your own parts.
