Junior Game Creators is a family of fun, educational clubs and workshops with inbuilt social impact. Designed to kickstart and develop an interest in computer science through video games. Our online sessions and clubs are where code meets the creative arts.

Whats on for kids award

Junior Game Creator Workshops are run in schools, libraries and other venues as well as online. We even deliver sessions at your home in our mobile class rooms known as the Gamewagons ™ .

If there’s not a workshop nearby, or if you can’t wait until the next one, we can bring Junior Game Creators to you. Either online or using our state-of-the-art Gamewagon vehicles, we can run a workshop for up to eight children, right on your doorstep! We bring the learning materials and your children just need bring their creative genius!


If you cannot attend one of our workshops in person then we have a fun online computer science club for budding Junior Game Creators. Learn at your own pace with some cool computer science projects. If you know a budding game developer our fun projects will encourage their digital creativity and give your kids real projects to nurture their interest in computer science in a relaxed environment. Membership also gives you access to our new Virtual Classroom.

Making Games from Scratch to Industry Standard Techniques

Junior Game Creators is for anyone who wants to look deeper into what makes the games they play.

Over the course of our sessions in person and online they’ll learn about what makes games work. We then hand over the creation tools to our gamers. There is more to making games than might meet the eye and code is the cement that joins all the creative elements together.

We task our Junior Game Creators with designing their own versions of games they love to play in Scratch, the programming software that is now part of the national computing curriculum.

Once they master Scratch they can LEVEL Up and try our advanced content where we use an industry standard development tool called Construct. With the ability to publish their games on many devices, the world then becomes their oyster!

Model for Social Impact and Diversity in Learning to Code

Our Five2One model for providing sustainable social impact is why we started our mission back in 2014.

We call it Five2One because for every five schools that have a parent paid after school club we support schools less privileged on the JGC Academy for free. We provide access to quality workshops, tutorials and clubs for children with less advantaged backgrounds at no cost. This means our business will improve diversity and inclusion by creating digital skills for all.

From 2014 to 2020, we have grown and taught over 10,000 children and counting. All we ask is you start an after school club so we can continue to provide sustainable activities to children at schools that may be less fortunate than yourself.

How we nurture interest in code and keep learning fun.

Users Vs Creators

Kids are constantly using technology today, but how many are learning to create it?

Every primary student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. The recent changes in the national curriculum have recognised the need and ability for children to start early.

The basics of coding help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for a wide variety of future careers.

More Than Just Code

Junior Game Creators is more than just about code. Each session is a super fun group learning experience.

Everyone works towards a common goal, in teams, on challenges that will stretch their creativity in art, design, maths, problem solving, team work and communication.

In the same way that learning to read enables learning, learning to code opens up a world of exploration and opportunity.

Guided Discovery

Learning computer science helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity.

Starting early gives students a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path and makes the transition to secondary school less intimidating.

By using games as a focus even the most difficult concepts are no longer barriers but simply a way to a desired result.

We have been spreading the word. Our Son loves the courses and raves about them all the time to his friends! Keep up the good work! We don’t have Facebook accounts but we will certainly continue to tell our friends and family about you.

We’ve attended Junior Games Creators workshops on 7 occasions now. Every time he learns new coding skills. My son has attended other coding clubs but this is by far his favourite.  Quote from my son “It is great fun and I can’t wait to go again”.

My son thoroughly enjoyed the game maker holiday club and wanted to go for longer.
I will definitely be booking him to attend again in the Easter holidays. The sessions were well run and great value for money.
