The new franchises have been launched in Thames Valley, Norfolk, Mid Sussex, South Midlands, the Solent and East Berkshire. All the franchises have been well received by local educational organisations and are running popular classes within their local community.
'I am thrilled by the expansion of our franchise network,' says Nigel Toplis, Managing Director of ComputerXplorers. 'ComputerXplorers is a fantastic proposition and we're getting great feedback from parents, teachers and children in our franchise areas. It provides a fun yet structured way for children to learn lifelong skills and is delivered by enthusiastic and committed instructors who make a real difference within their community.'
Marika Mears, Head Teacher of St. Martin at Shouldham CE VA Primary School, Norfolk, adds: 'We have been very impressed with the professional approach of the tutors. Activities are well planned, the software is of high quality and support is provided depending on the children's needs. We offered a taster session during one of our school activity days and parents signed pupils up for sessions. What could be easier? We only need provide the room and pupils receive a very productive after-school activity. We would highly recommend ComputerXplorers to schools. We are looking forward to expanding this activity to our Foundation stage pupils next.'
