iCompute leads the way in supporting schools with comprehensive computing curricula for pupils aged 3-11.

iCompute was the first ever primary computing curriculum in the United Kingdom, launched ahead of the National Curriculum for Computing 2014.  Our expertise and innovation in computing teaching has been recognised every year by the British Educational Training and Technology (BETT) Awards since its launch in 2014 as well as by the Education Resources Awards (ERA).

We passionately believe in exciting children about the art, as well as the science, of computing and offer creative, engaging and challenging teaching materials for primary schools.

Our lesson plans and computing resources are featured on BBC Bitesize for Computing and the Hour of Code and are used in thousands of state, public and independent schools around the world.
