Children’s University Gold Award Graduation Ceremony (July 2016)

Grad Photo July 2016.jpgLast night, after all the excitement of Prom had died down, three of our most fantastic Year Six pupils went to the Sheffield Town Hall to receive their Gold Awards from the Sheffield Children’s University for completing over 100 hours of extra-curricular activities.

Just look how smart they all were in their graduation gowns and caps!

Sheffield Children’s University (CU) is part of an exciting national initiative that encourages and celebrates participation in a wide range of inspiring learning opportunities outside school hours. National research shows a clear link between participation in study support activities and academic progress due to increased self-esteem and confidence.

More information on the organisation can be found at either of these websites or even ask in school:
