Children’s University

The Children’s University is an extra-curricular learning programme which takes place outside of the classroom; outside of the academy day. It will encourage our students, aged 11-14, to try out different learning activities and participate in unfamiliar experiences; supporting them to become more inquisitive, independent students and self-motivated learners with new skills and confidence. They will build resilience and develop willingness to try something new.

For more information, please view the website.
