Introducing our Royal patron

We’re really pleased to announce our new patron His Royal Highness The Duke of York.

We first met the Duke back in June 2012 when he was kind enough to be part of a video we made whilst we were there. Hopefully you’ve seen it but just incase you haven’t here it is again.

The Duke has a very keen interest in technology and education and is patron of other organisations that strive to inspire children with technology. He is the patron of Teen Tech and fantastic organisation run by Maggie Philbin that organises technology focused events for the teen age group, Young Engineers who do great work inspiring children into engineering and of Harwell Oxford which is a leading centre for technology and innovation.

We held a special assembly this morning at the Soho Parish School where the Duke announce how pleased he was to be able to support Code Club and help us grow. We’re looking forward to working with him in the future to spread the word of Code Club far and wide!
