What is Children’s University?

Here’s a quick reminder

Children’s University is a charitable organisation providing exciting learning experiences for 4 -14 year olds outside school hours. The journey encourages children to see the joy of learning, giving a sense of wonder and helps children develop confidence and aspirations.

CU offers Learning credits for participating in school lead activities.

At the end of each academic year children will graduate in cap and gown just like a normal University if they accrue enough credits. The children who have already taken part will continue to add to their credits and awards.

The school has successfully invested into this national programme having one of the highest number of graduates in Lancashire. Along with the time invested in creating different programmes of study / learning that allows the following

Raises Aspirations

Promotes positivity

Inspires and informs

Enhances Wellness

Trying out new things

With over 30 different enriching clubs on offer after school, for all key stages there’s every opportunity for all children to take part.

They do this by choosing a club, attending the club and then collecting points/credits.  These add up over the year and subsequently turn into an award.

Every enriching club after school you earn credits.

 It’s that simple!

There’s a maximum of 10 credits you can gain from the same activity. 1 credit for After School Clubs

You can get more credits for doing activities out of school that are recognised places by Children’s University
