Children's University

Children's University Passport.

Children's University is an initiative linked to clubs that Clifton has been running since 2010. Currently, it runs for children in Years 3 to 6.

Children who opt to take part in this purchase a Children's University passport into which they can collect credit for time spent attending clubs or validated activities. These credits build up and when a child has over 30 hours in their passport, they are given the opportunity to take part in a graduation ceremony.

The graduation ceremonies have been held in the Great Hall at Aston University and more recently at Newman University, however we have also had other ceremonies at King Edwards Schools. They are all special events that everyone loves to be part of, and which also raises the aspirations of our children.

Children's University is growing, not only at Clifton Primary School, but across the City of Birmingham. As well as any validated clubs that children attend there are many Learning Destinations that you can visit as a family, and as long as children remember their passports, they can earn hours.

Below is a detailed list of all the Public Learning Destinations across the central area:

Occasionally, there are other activities that Birmingham Children's University make available to children. Remember to keep up to date by checking their website (see below) and any activities we hear about we will post here for you access.
