We are delighted to announce that St George’s Bristol is now an official ‘Children’s University Learning Destination’ Hooray!

What does this mean?

When children aged 5 – 14 come to events here, they can now gain credits towards a Children’s University graduation, celebrating the learning that they are involved with outside of school.

What is the Children’s University?

The Children’s University (CU) is a trust that believes children can learn when doing all sorts of activities, that children learn best when they decide what they want to learn, when and where and most importantly, have FUN whilst learning.

The CU provides and signposts opportunities to take part in exciting and creative learning outside of the normal school day. Activities can be before school, during play and lunchtimes, after school, at weekends and during the school holidays.

You can work through lots of CU Award levels. Starting with your Bronze Award for 30 hours of CU Learning Activities up to a Gold Fellowship Award for 1,000 hours.

You might see children at the venue with their learning passports. Which look like this…

To get your passport stamped, just ask the lovely people in our box office. They have two special Children’s University stamps ready for your visit. If you forgets to bring your passport, don’t worry. We can stamp and date a piece of St George’s notepaper for you to stick in at home, so you will still get your credits.

Look out for this badge on our family events…
