Children's University

Children university logo 0

Children’s University has been running at Merchants’ Academy with great success for several years. At the end of each year we watch with great pride as students graduate in their gowns with all the pomp and ceremony at Bristol Cathedral joined by their parents/carers and Academy staff.

If the children accrue enough stamps on their passports (by attending school clubs and visiting places incuding galleries, exhibitions and events where their passports gains them free access as members of the Children's University) they will be awarded a bronze, silver or gold. Further qualifications such as diplomas, degrees and even fellowships from the Childen's University are available if they work extremely hard.

How do I start?

Parents/carers can acquire passports from the Primary Reception. Further details of all the awards are stated within the passports. Children's University membership is open to all children from 5-14 years.
