Whizzkids has been in operation since 2002 and has delivered courses and camps to thousands of children across the country. Whizzkids is managed by Garry Lowe and his wife Derval, both of whom have backgrounds in teaching. They have three children themselves so understand the high standards that we all desire for our children. Since it’s inception Whizzkids has focussed on delivering training to teens and pre-teens and has always sought fun and innovative ways to pass on IT skills that can be so rewarding as a creative outlet or for a career. We strive to ensure the highest possible standards and use only qualified teachers in the delivery of our camps and courses.
