    I learnt Python first through school, then dabbled in HTML, CSS, Javascript and have finally begun to learn C# independently outside of school

    I would recommend starting with Python because it's really simple. I've heard Ruby is easy too but I don't really have that much experience with it.

    Also check out CodeCademy, that's where I learnt a lot of programming stuff

    C++ i guess, it's relatively straight forward and isn't dead
    C# is another useful one

    If you're doing a computing course at A-Level, you should learn the one you're taught before starting another imo

    I would suggest starting with python if you are new to programming, if you are wanting to study it at university then I would suggest a language like java or c# as they are generally the required languages for the courses.
