Children's University

At Prestolee, we believe that learning beyond the classroom is limitless. We are very proud of  our wide ranging extra-curricular offer at school and are keen for our children to gain recognition for their learning outside of the classroom. Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. This is done by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities, both inside and outside of school, in which children gain the recognition for these activities. The impact of such activities is proven to have a positive impact on children’s social and academic achievements. The organisation is committed to creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds. 



Throughout the year, children log their own hours on their own Children's University portal, using a unique code for each activity. These hours are then collected and when children reach 25 hours of extra curricular activities they are invited to attend a graduation held at Bolton University in the Summer Term. Each year, these hours accrue and children graduate again with a higher level qualification.
