School Clubs & Children's University

Our little knitters have been very busy with their needles and have worked hard to make lots of blankets, cardigans and hats to present to Warrington Hospital Neo-natal Unit and St. Mary's Hospital in Manchester.

Our extra-curricular programme provides all our children with opportunities to take part in new experiences and activities and to learn new skills outside normal school hours.

We offer a range of activities covering: the arts, crafts, the environment, science, maths, English and sports. Our clubs run for all children from Reception to Year 6.

Most of the activities we offer are oversubscribed so it is important you attend. If you miss two sessions for any reason other than absence then you could lose your place.

Collecting Children - all after school clubs finish at 4:15pm, please arrive promptly to collect your child at the end of an activity.

Charges - there is  a one-off charge of £5.00 for each activity. This is to cover the cost of a facilitator and any materials/equipment needed to run the club. All charges made are subsidised by the school.                     

Sports Activities - a P.E. kit will be required. We highly recommend a tracksuit and trainers as some sports clubs will be outside.   

Football/Rugby Club - children may wear football boots or trainers, school can provide shin pads. When weather forecast is for rain a towel may be needed as these activities will take place outside. 

Forest School - children should wear appropriate footwear and jacket as this club will take place outside in the forest area.

If a club is not going to run you will be informed through the school text message service and a message will be sent to your class.

C.U. has established a network of over 105 local centres, and raised the aspirations of 150,000+ children and their families. C.U. Graduates have contributed to more than 2.5 million hours of voluntary learning, and many have overcome disadvantage to become proud and confident learners.

All our pupils, (from Reception to Y6), are part of Children's University. They receive credits for attending any school clubs and residential visits. Credits from school activities are recorded on a database and sent to C.U. termly.

Children can also attend Learning Destinations and take part in holiday activities. Credits from these should be recorded in a passport. These credits are also checked each term and added to any from school.

Passports can be purchased from school at a cost of £3.50

How Children's University works:

  • Join in extra curricular activities at school to earn credits.
  • Buy a passport and earn more credits attending local and national validated Learning Destinations.
  • Check Warrington Children's University Facebook page for CU activities taking place locally or the Children's University website for activities nationally.
