Essex Children's University
Essex Children's University is one of
a growing number of children's universities around the country, each
working to provide children aged 7-14 years (and 5-6 year olds with their families) with exciting and innovative
learning activities and experiences outside of the normal school day.
We are proud to be a Validated Learning Destination for Essex Children's University. By taking part in Children's
University, we can celebrate and reward achievements in learning.
There are lots of activities that you can do, from art and drama in our gallery and theatre, to junior
lectures where you can study just like a university student. We also have fun days around Essex that you can come
and take part in with your family. Any validated activities you do will earn you extra hours in your passport. We
also host the graduation ceremonies for the Essex Children's University's Colchester and Tendring campuses.
This video showcases one of our Children's University events, which took place at Firstsite in Colchester.
Art Trolley takes place every Saturday during
term-time and offers free activities linked to current exhibitions at our gallery.
Our Lakeside Theatre holds Youth Theatre sessions
every Saturday during term-time.
