The Children's University aims to promote social mobility by providing high quality, exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours to children aged 7 to 14 (and 5 and 6 year olds with their families) and engaging the wider communities as learning partners in the realisation of this. At the heart of its work is the ambition to raise aspirations, boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that young people can make the most of their abilities and interests.
Here at Langold Dyscarr Community School, Years 3,4,5 and 6 are members of the Children's university. Each week they they take part in extra curricular activities and earn stamps in the university passports. Once they reach the bronze, silver and gold milestones, they graduate with the peers during a ceremony at Nottingha Trent University. The children, parents and staff are very proud of the children's achievements!
