"You don't have to be in school to learn"
- Children’s University Student


What is Children’s University?
The Children's University (CU) aims to provide high quality, exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside of normal school hours. It is aimed at children aged 7 to 14 (and 5 and 6 year olds with their families), and engages the wider community as learning partners. Its ambition is to raise aspirations, boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that young people can make the most of their abilities and interests. Our students are issued with a Passport To Learning in which they collect ‘stamps’ for every hour of ‘informal’ (outside the classroom) learning that they do. Certificates are awarded for bronze and silver levels locally and gold certificates are presented at a special graduation ceremony held at Plymouth University towards the end of the summer term.

What does a Learning Destination do?
    update passports to reflect the learning that has taken place. keep us up to date with upcoming events for us to promote through our website and monthly newsletter advertise membership when marketing to schools continue to provide high quality learning.

What do the children think?

“I enjoy all the different clubs and activities and get to meet lots of different people and try new activities and skills.”
