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 each year by the prestigious British Educational Training and Technology (BETT) Awards and Education Resources Awards (ERA).

We achieve that by continually adding to and updating our acclaimed schemes of work to remain at the forefront of advances in educational technology, providing innovative new resources and materials to support and promote engagement with computing around the world.

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.
