The Children’s University scheme is a national organisation that provides 7 to 14 year olds with exciting and innovative learning activities in out of school hours activities. Credits are awarded to young people who choose to attend a variety of learning activities out of normal school hours, including breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs and evening, weekend and school holiday clubs and activities. We celebrate achievement and reward participation through our certificates.
Raising children’s aspirations is important to us and we aim to develop the understanding that learning can be the satellite navigation to better places in life!
