Femi
Owolade-Coombes Computer-coding
entrepreneur and philanthropist

“Femi is a Design, Technology and Engineering scholar at Whitgift. His passion for coding led him to set up South London Raspberry Jam – which looks to share his skills and knowledge with other young people.”

Femi now runs hundreds of coding and robot workshops across the UK and internationally. The community events he runs with other volunteers, have been praised for being pioneering as they are fully inclusive and welcome young people who have autism or, like him, tourettes syndrome. He has also won several prestigious awards including The Diana Award and The Prime Minister's Point of Light award.

He is a passionate hockey player, and having been at the School for a few years, he is often involved in mentoring  or supporting younger students at School events.
