We were the first school in Worcestershire to become a Children's University in January 2014. Being a Children's University allows us to celebrate the commitment and hard work that our children put into learning outside of school hours. Children collect stamps in their passports for any validated out of hours learning and work towards achieving their bronze (30 hours), silver (65 hours) and gold award (100 hours), where children graduate at Worcester University.
We attended our first graduation ceremony in December 2014 and have since attended every year with more and more children achieving bronze, silver and gold awards year on year. Key Stage 2 children are working hard out of lessons to continue to achieve stamps in their passports so we can look forward to even more proud moments at future graduations.
There are more and more validated destinations in Worcestershire and Birmingham where children can achieve stamps so if you go on any family visits, look out for the Children's University signs and ask for a validation form so the stamps can be put in passports. Check the link below for the full list of validated centres.
Children's University Graduation July 2018
Congratulations to the 16 children receiving their awards at this year's Graduation Ceremony held at Worcester Arena. For the first time we had children receiving not only their bronze, silver and gold awards (which is a huge achievement) but also children receiving their bronze certificates which meant that some children had gained over 130 hours of stamps in their passports. Yet again, the children made us very proud and it was a very special event enjoyed by the staff, parents and of course the wonderful children themselves! Let's see if we can get even more hours next year - the challenge is on!
