Codingbug was founded in 2012 by Gicela Morales when her daughters were at primary school. Learning to code wasn’t part of the curriculum in the UK and Gicela set up the first after school coding club at her daughters’ school. This proved very popular and since then, the clubs have been attended by hundreds of students in North Somerset and more recently, further afield.

In North Somerset, Codingbug has worked with a number of schools, including Mary Elton Primary School, Backwell Junior School, Yatton Infants and Juniors, Winscombe Primary School and Backwell Secondary School.

“I know that Ollie has thoroughly enjoyed his time with you over the years and gained so much interest in the subject. In fact he never stops talking about it!”

“I received tutoring from Gicela throughout my GCSEs, during which she was a great tutor and helped me develop my programming skills far beyond the course. It put me far ahead of the class and no doubt contributed a large part to my grade 9 in Computer Science GCSE, of which a large part of the course is programming” – GCSE Student.
