Children's University


Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. We do this by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. The impact of these activities is proven to be positive which is why we’re committed to creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds.


If you decide to join, you will be issued with a passport to learning (an online version and a paper passport which can be stamped when you visit places that are part of the scheme) where you can record all the learning activities, clubs and experiences that you take part in. Once a year, graduation ceremonies are held- if you have 30 hours or more of learning logged in your passport you can graduate wearing a proper cap and gown.


The only cost to joining the scheme is £2.50 membership which covers the cost of your passport, online passport and graduation ceremony.


Learning activities that count towards your hours of learning include all of our after school clubs, family days out (such as the Museum, Bristol Zoo or SS Great Britain), all scouting association clubs, Karate, Dance and many more!


For more information about joining Children's University please see Mrs Drake. We look forward to finding out about all the exciting learning activities that you take part in.
