Children’s University is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children. We do this by encouraging and celebrating participation in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school. The impact of these activities is proven to be positive which is why we’re committed to creating a level playing field of opportunity and opening up access to children of all backgrounds.

Each year, Blackburn Children's University hold a graduation. Last year we had twenty-one children who achieved over 100 hours of extra-curricular activities, with one child achieving over 400 hours. Two of our older children prepared and delivered a speech at the graduation explaining what they did to achieve their award and the difference taking part in extra-curricular activities have on their lives.
