Out of Hours School Learning

From Easter 2014 all Year 7 students will become members of the Children’s University (CU). This is an international organisation that provides 7-14 year olds with access to exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside of the normal school. In partnership with the Children’s University, as a CU Learning Destination, we aim to raise aspirations, celebrate and boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that children can make the most of their abilities and interests and also challenge themselves to experience something new, exciting and fun. Research shows that a student’s involvement in out of hours school learning can also help boost their exam results.

We expect all Year 7s to be involved in at least one activity each term. Their mentor will support them in finding an activity in which to participate. You can use this webpages to view the extensive range of activities we offer from art, sport, dance, drama, music, Tai Chi, trips and visits to certain College activities.

Through the school’s Children’s University online ‘E-Passport’ secure website, students will record their participation in school activities, be able to give feedback on activities and look for activities in other Learning Destinations. They will also receive an individually numbered ‘Passport to Learning’ in which they can collect stamps and stickers to demonstrate the number of hours of learning they have achieved in activities at other CU Learning Destinations. The time they spend in activities will count towards nationally recognised certificates celebrating their hours of learning. Once they reach a certain level, they will be given the opportunity to attend the annual Children’s University Graduation ceremony at a local University together with their family.
