Your course runs for ten sessions on Saturdays; 9:30 – 10:15am.
Starting from your preferred start date during school terms, this is a roll in / roll out course. If you miss a week, you can make it up another time.
Join us at St Joseph’s Primary School, Kingston-upon-Thames in person, or via Zoom where you will be supported by one of our team.
8 – 16’s are welcome along with their parents for an all age family learning course.
Drop off your child at the beginning of the session or come along as well to refresh and build your own touch-typing skills.

Typing’s Cool aims to teach 8 – 16s and adults how to touch type up to 40 words per minute with 95% accuracy. By using all ten fingers and thumbs, rather than pecking at a keyboard with two fingers, pupils can learn to type four to five times faster. Beginners, improvers and advanced touch typists are given personalised guidance and support.
- The course is aimed at children and young people, as well as being open to their parents for a complete beginners or refreshers course.
- Remote learners will be sent links to our software, teaching materials and the Zoom meeting ID.
- We use a range of educational programmes especially designed by experts, matching our approach to your child’s preferred learning style. Physical exercises are introduced to further improve touch typing ability. Typing’s Cool also promotes spelling, writing and presentation skills. For learners the fun is in dodging asteroids, zapping aliens, “type” rope walking and other app type challenges.
We accept child care vouchers for holiday courses.
