Children's University

As part of our commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum, enrichment is a central part of a student’s experience at Edgar Wood Academy. All students are expected to participate in a minimum of two different activities each week, and can choose from the wide range of activities available. We encourage students to not only develop existing skills, but to also try new things which will allow them to see their abilities in a new light.  

Students are enrolled in the Children’s University through Rochdale Sixth Form College, allowing them to collect points for enrichment activities inside and outside of school. There is also a wide range of activities available through the online portal, allowing students to develop their skills and interests from home. 

We celebrate the time and effort students have put into enrichment at the end of the year. Depending on how many points they have gathered, students may be eligible for a certificate, diploma or degree from Children’s University, and all of our students will attend the graduation ceremony!
