Children's University

At St John’s we are delighted to work alongside Children’s University. We encourage our children to access learning beyond the normal school day and to gain recognition for their commitment to enhancing their own learning.

Children collect 1 credit for each hour they attend an accredited Children’s University activity or after school club.  Depending on the amount of credits the children earn, they can achieve Children’s University certificates and awards. To celebrate the commitment and hard work the children have produced throughout the year, year 2 and 6 children and families will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony.  The children will be robed in caps, gowns and stoles then presented with their certificate. 

There is an option for children to collect credits outside of school through the use of a Children’s University Passport which can be purchased from school. In order to collect credits outside of school, children must visit a Children’s University Learning Destination. Follow the link below to look at some of the local learning destinations and information on how to get a club registered.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with school or Louise who co-ordinates Children’s University if you have any further queries.
