Computer code is how most things in this world run, from websites to traffic lights. Recognising the importance of code, schools now have it as part of the national curriculum.

Seeing that code is just like learning another language, Barclays have found a unique and fun way to give your kids a head start – the Barclays Code Playground.

As well as creating a safe, online playground for children to try their hand at coding, Barclays are also offering monthly 2-hour sessions for ages 7 to 17 in selected branches where Digital Eagles will guide your children as they take on fun challenges that introduce them to the basics.
