Children’s University is run by the Children’s University (CU) Trust. It operates through more than 80 local centres, with a further 25 in planning. Local Children’s University centres are almost always a partnership between several organisations, and membership is managed at school level.

The Children’s University (CU) aims to promote social mobility by providing high quality out-of-school-hours activities to children aged 7 to 14 and engaging the wider communities as learning partners in this process. An important principle of the Children’s University is that participation is voluntary and it is intentionally something other than school – with a different feel, different activities and often a different location, peer group and staff. At the heart of its work is the ambition to raise aspirations, boost achievement and foster a love of learning. It enables young people to make the most of their abilities and interests, regardless of the background into which they were born.
