Launch day

We went to Queens Park School for the launch day, to meet Children's University Ambassador - Micheal Rosen!




At Essendine this year we continue to be part of an exciting scheme called Children’s University!


We are working alongside Westminster University to aim to inspire, encourage children to learn independently and raise their aspiration that university is accessible for all. The children of Essendine can take part in this through extracurricular activities in the form of lectures, workshops, visits to museums/galleries at the weekend, sports clubs, language schools and their own research projects (anything outside of school that contributes to learning!) In addition we hold workshops run by local businesses. Children are then asked to record their extracurricular activities in hours in the hope to achieve graduation by the end of the year. The more hours they do, the greater their graduation certification will be.


This year, due to Covid-19, children will be given web-logs with lots of online activities they can undergo and record. They will also be given a passport to record other activities but this will be kept in school.

We would love if you as parents, carers and guardians can work with us to help our pupils acquire new skills and confidence in their own learning!
