FunTech Mission

To create engaging and enriching learning experiences that empower the next generation to create, engineer and use technology.


Past, present and future


FunTech was established in 1996 by Sheineez and Phillip Barber with the intention to create a local ‘tech’ school to teach children and teenagers cutting-edge tech skills.

FunTech has now evolved into a highly respected, multi-product, Ofsted registered school of innovative tech learning.

And today, we continue to pioneer the latest educational technologies, such as FunTech Virtual - our tutor-led virtual learning environment.

“FunTech noticed my son's strengths as soon as they met him and it boosted his confidence more than you can imagine! With excellent support from all the teachers and staff he completed his GCSE two years early, and was thrilled to get an A. He learnt so much about how to study too, which he can now take through to his other courses.”
