Children’s University – Parents


Nether Stowe School is proud to be part of the Children’s University™ Scheme which aims to raise aspirations, celebrate and boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that children can make the most of their abilities and interests.

All children in Key Stage 3 have the opportunity to take part in Children’s University and extra-curricular activities at Nether Stowe School. Children can collect stamps to demonstrate the number of hours of learning they have achieved in validated Children’s University activities.  They will also be able to record their hours, give feedback on the activities and look for new Learning Destinations on the Children’s University website. 

With lots of these activities on offer in school through our extra-curricular programme, every student should be able to complete 30 hours of ‘study’. Yet students can gain hours outside of school with registered ‘learning destinations’ across the UK. When students complete their 30 hours of ‘study’ this will allow them to receive a Bronze award. Some students may go even further and achieve a Silver (60 hours) or even Gold Award (100 hours).  Students completing over a 100 hours of learning activities will be invited to a very special graduation ceremony to be held at the University of Birmingham in June 2023 with invitations extended to parents/carers to watch.
