Children’s University

Sheffield Children’s University (CU) encourages and celebrates participation in learning opportunities outside school. Waterthorpe School is a Children’s University subscriber and children will earn CU credits for all extra-curricular activities attended.

Well done to our Spring Term 100 hours, Gold Award winners, Millar, Angelica and Yasmine.

Children’s University Activities for the February Half Term Holiday

During the school holidays the Sheffield Children’s University (SHU) offer a range of activities, across the city, for your child to be involved in. Children who attend our school, collect credits for attending after-school clubs. If you purchase a SHU passport from the local library children will be able to collect additional credits for any activities that they attend out of school.

Please click here for the Children’s University February 2018 activity leaflet.


children do not need a passport to collect credits for activities at school but they do need one for out of school activities. These are available from the library for a small cost.

Below is a list of providers that are registered with the CU. If you go to any sessions by these providers please take your passport with you. If your provider is not on the list you can request that they become a CU provider at no cost to themselves. They would need to contact the CU team or you can email and ask the CU team to invite your provider to join.
