Children's University Graduation 2017


Leeds Children's University works with local schools to provide exciting and innovative voluntary learning activities for children aged 7 to 14.

What's happening?

More than 100 pupils from five Leeds schools will graduate from Leeds Children's University at a prestigious graduation ceremony at Leeds Trinity University.

Leeds Children’s University’s first Chancellor, Liverpool FC player and former England midfielder, James Milner, will be attending the ceremony to award certificates to the children.

The pupils will be awarded certificates for completing 30 or more hours of learning activities outside of school as part of the Leeds Children's University programme.


5.00pm (you must be seated by 4.30pm)
Thursday 7 December 2017


Leeds Trinity University, Brownberrie Lane, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 5HD

How does Leeds Children's University work?

Every child that becomes a member of Leeds Children's University receives their own Passport to Learning which they can use to collect stamps when they take part in activities in Learning Destinations. Certificates are awarded when a child reaches targets:

  • Bronze Award Certificate: 30 hours of Childre n's University Learning Activities
  • Silver Award Certificate: 65 hours of Children's University Learning Activities
  • Gold Award Certificate: 100 hours of Children's University Learning Activities

These are fantastic occasions for children, parents, carers and school staff. The pinnacle is our annual graduation ceremony held at Leeds Trinity when the children get to wear gowns and mortar boards.

Learning Destinations

Leeds Trinity University and partner schools are all official Learning Destinations. In addition, Leeds Children's University has validated 20 local organisat ions, ranging from museums and galleries to dance and drama groups, to become public Learning Destinations where children can take part in high-quality learning activities. ​
