A coding school has announced that it has opened its first two UK centres in the London area. Code Ninjas, which has franchises internationally, opened its first centres in Watford and Pinner this month.
This comes ahead of plans to open more UK sites “in quick succession” before the end of this year.
Reena Patel, who owns the Watford centre with partner Jass, commented: “It’s an honour to be part of Code Ninjas and play such a vital role in spearheading the growth of the brand on British soil.
“We both feel so passionately about Code Ninjas’ commitment to delivering quality, fun coding education and are thrilled to have the opportunity to support that mission in our community. We’re in for a busy few months but can’t wait to make our mark on the state of children’s coding education in the UK.”
Prasad Prabhakaran, one of the four co-owners of Code Ninjas Pinner, said: “It feels so wonderful to be able to welcome our first students. “
It’s been an exciting few months for us all, as we’ve worked hard to prepare for our launch. The centre looks incredible and the feedback we’ve received from our ninjas and their families has been fantastic.
“We’re all looking forward to a ninja-fuelled future in our area!”
Marty Flanagan, VP of Franchising at Code Ninjas, added: “Opening our first few UK locations has come at such a pivotal time, as families plan for their children going back to school in the autumn.

“The turnout at both events is proof of the demand for our kids’ coding curriculum in their respective communities and we’ve been blown away by the initial response.
“If the launches of Code Ninjas Watford and Code Ninjas Pinner are anything to go by, the next few launches – which will be taking place in quick succession before the year is out! – will really put Code Ninjas on the UK map.”
