Welcome to Computing at School

We are passionate about ensuring that every child has a world-class computing education. We encourage, support and equip teachers of computing through our Community of Professional Practice.

The CAS community is open to everyone who cares about computing education, including teachers, academics, developers, IT professionals, members of professional societies, school leaders, and parents.
