Children’s University Summer Activities

Sheffield Children’s University (SCU) have lots of activities planned over the Summer holidays. If you collect an SCU Passport from the library (small charge) your child can collect credits towards SCU awards. Children earn credits automatically by attending clubs at school. 
Please take a look at the leaflet below and book early as some activities do get booked up quickly.

Please click here for SCU Summer Activities.


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.
