Children's University

Children in Selby now have their very own university!  Selby Community Primary School has become a
local Children's University. The Children's University is a national project
which aims to raise children’s self-esteem, aspirations and achievements.

After discovering that both York and Leeds Children's Universities were
focussing on their immediate vicinity, Selby Community Primary school decided
to bring the university to the Selby area themselves. 

Children will be able to take part in exciting and innovative learning
activities outside normal school hours both in school and in the community. By
collecting stamps in a passport, children can graduate as Children’s University
undergraduates, or even as Masters or PhD students – complete with cap and gown at a special ceremony.

Although the Children's university is based at Selby Community Primary, schools
in the area are invited to become part of this exciting new project

The success of the Selby Children’s University depends on the local community and we would ask anyone who may be able to assist to get involved. This could be volunteering in school for a club, running a session in your workplace, helping with funding - the possibilities are endless.
