Become a CU Learning Destination!


“Over 85% of learning occurs outside the school ….habitats outside the classroom – out there in the wild – are where the best learning might take place. It is certainly where most learning might already be taking place. So it is important that we are all try to get out there in the wild with our children as they adventure into exciting virgin territory …remagicalising the world!” - James Bradburne.


Do you offer after school clubs or special activities for children to get involved in that are voluntary, have learning outcomes but most of all are fun?


Would you like to reward those children who participate and encourage others to join in and help raise aspirations for all children?


Then why not become a Childrens University® Learning Destination?


We are a national organisation with local centres; our aim is to focus on creating excitement about learning, on inspiration and aspiration and on encouraging inquisitiveness. Children’s University learning is about becoming confident and independent learners drawing on local learning opportunities within a national framework.


It is also about developing the recognition that learning – any time, any place anywhere – can be a personalised satellite navigation system to better places and that it should be fun!

Information for Schools

We want to work in partnership and develop modules that will help the national curriculum. You give us a gap and we will endeavour to fill it!

We have a menu of modules for schools to choose from. The modules support what children are learning in school at key stages 2 & 3. Doncaster Children’s & Youth University is open to all Doncaster Schools.

Online Survey about quality 'after' school activities


The Government intends that by 2010 all schools should become extended schools offering access to a core offer of five extended services. Schools may choose to provide these services themselves, offer them through clustering arrangements or use third party providers prom the private, voluntary and community sectors.


Children’s University is taking steps to help schools provide high quality study support delivered after school by gathering together a list of individuals and organisations that deliver high quality after school clubs, activities or special events.
