Our own unique curriculum with fun and engaging activities
We create our own leading-edge curriculum ensuring that all of our courses are totally fun, engaging and educational.
We focus on a blend of tech skills and computational thinking combined with soft skills such as collaboration, communication and problem-solving, and of course very often boosting literacy and numeracy alongside.

A huge range of cool courses – coding, robotics and so much more!

Our extensive range of coding classes are enormously popular and we have even more great tech activities besides! These are just some of the courses we offer – 3D design and printing, augmented reality, app design, digital arts, animation, game design, robotics, engineering, electronics and the latest Minecraft skills – as well as all of our coding courses, of course!

What’s our market?

The market is HUGE…

The need for children to develop computing skills is now widely recognised.
Fluency and familiarity with computers and technology is essential to nurture the future digital generation and ensure that today’s children become creators of technology and not just passive consumers of it.

Demand is exploding as educators and parents recognise the value of these skills…and of course, the children are having so much fun they don’t notice how much they are learning!

How much can I earn?

Earnings are very much down to the individual franchisee with the hours they are prepared to invest, together with their drive and ambition. Franchisees have the flexibility to choose the hours that suit them.

Franchisees who have the drive and determination to push themselves and the business forward can earn a substantial income. Franchisees have the potential to earn in excess of £60,000 in year 1.

South East Scotland area

ComputerXplorers South East Scotland is an established and well-respected business that has been running successfully since 2009. This is a fantastic opportunity to secure a low cost, home, and lifestyle-based business with a steady income stream in a sound, recession-proof marketplace.

ComputerXplorers is the leading provider of quality technology education for children from the ages of 3 to 13. The clubs and classes are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence and with over 200 pieces of curriculum, lesson plans and parent updates the range is comprehensive and the breadth of offering substantial.

We have strong relationships with local primary schools and event providers and previous customers have included everyone from The Edinburgh Science Festival and Edinburgh Council to Historic Scotland, the National Trust for Scotland and Excel Sports Edinburgh. We have a fantastic reputation with thousands of parents and children in the area and have a strong and active social media presence. Any purchaser will be introduced to our existing regular customers and schools.

“My 9 year old absolutely loved doing the summer design and Minecraft class. He really enjoyed being shown new design software and developing his Minecraft knowledge as well as sharing ideas with the other group members. I would recommend ComputerXplorers SEScotland and hope to do more classes in the future.” 

The territory has over 300 primary schools and 300 nurseries. We have invested heavily in software, equipment, and materials all of which is included in the sale price. Equipment includes Lego Education Kits, Micro:bits and Edison Robots. All of which will allow the purchaser to hit the ground running.

Revenue is highly sustainable with a turnover of £45,000+ and we have a high level of repeat business and new schools and customers are frequently added through referral.


This is a great opportunity to take over a well-established business with huge scope for further development in this rapidly expanding marketplace with ever increasing demand for children’s coding and technology classes.

Our online class timetable which we launched during COVID restrictions has been a huge success and is going from strength to strength and will form a key part of the business going forward.

To date, the focus of the business has been in the Edinburgh area. However, there is huge scope to develop the business into other areas of the territory including the rapidly growing areas of East and West Lothian and Midlothian as well as the Borders.

In addition, there are multiple routes to market such as pre-schools/nurseries, corporate and in school workshops which have been largely untapped and present significant areas of development for the purchaser.

“Your micro:bit workshops have enthused many of the pupils into the idea of what STEM subjects can be which has led to an increase in the uptake of our STEM enrichment course. A big plus is the amount of interest amongst girls as they have been a priority for us” (David Hardman, Ross High School)


You will receive extensive training and a marketing campaign from the Franchisor along with a 10-year licence to trade under ComputerXplorers plus detailed administrative and financial records and you can expect to benefit from collaboration and support from the franchise network.

PRICE - £32,000 plus the Franchisor fee.
