Children's University

We have created our programme, Children’s University, which is a key element of the holistic educational vision of the Wellington Primaries.

Our children enjoy a wealth of co-curricular activities that are designed to provide a breadth of opportunity and challenge during their time here.

Every week, a minimum of 2 hours is timetabled to Children’s University and all children are encouraged to participate.

Led by our inspiring staff, pupils are nurtured and given the opportunity to develop an enthusiasm for lifelong passions; they are encouraged to give things a go and to be creative thinkers.

Many will come here with passions already formed; others will find a flame lit for the first time.

Developing the much sought-after skills of leadership, collaboration, resilience and perseverance, we see the co-curricular life of the school as not merely about enjoyment and participation but as an important mechanism by which our pupils continue to learn and are therefore equipped to make an impact on the world at large. 

Indeed, it is not separate to what we are doing in the classroom, it is entirely complementary.  It is about the rich reward of hard work and the ability to bounce back when you fall down.  It is, above all else, about ensuring that all pupils are nurtured and encouraged during their time at WLPA and can develop aspirations, interests, passions, skills and values that will stay with them long after they leave the school gates.
