Computing Hub Secondary Lead
Computing Hubs have been established to help schools and colleges lead improvement in Computer Science education in England. Our vision is for every child in every school in England to have a world-leading computing education.
Computing Hubs are led by schools and colleges across England with an exceptional track record in teaching computing. They deliver face-to-face courses and provide local support for teachers in primary and secondary schools in their area.
Beauchamp College, Oadby leads the Leicester & East Midlands Computing Hub. We work with schools and colleges in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.

The Computing Hub has class sets of physical computing resources which can be borrowed along with training resources and unit plans during the Summer Term. There are Crumbles available for KS2, Micro:bits for KS2/3, and Raspberry Pi Computers and Picos for KS4. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
