It has been our long-term ambition to build upon 21 years of best practice and expand our work into the East Riding of Yorkshire, working in schools in areas of coastal and rural isolation. This was made possible in September 2016 due to the kind support of the British Foreign Schools Society and the Big Lottery Awards for All.
The following eight primary schools were part of the expansion of Children’s University in the East Riding of Yorkshire, who took part in 43 experiences, engaging 1,097 children in the 2016/17 academic year.
- Bay Primary School, Bridlington
- Burlington Junior School, Bridlington
- Easington CE Primary Academy
- Hilderthorpe Primary School, Bridlington
- Hornsea Burton Primary School
- New Pasture Lane Primary School, Bridlington
- Quay Academy, Bridlington
- Withernsea Primary School
Additional outreach work also took place at Harland House, SEN(B) Unit and St Anne’s School and Sixth Form College.
We are passionate about our work and are determined to build upon these early foundations strengthening links with the above schools, to ensure local children strive and succeed in the future and make what seems the ‘unbelievable’ ‘achievable’ for many of them. We are looking to bring onboard additional schools in Bridlington, Goole and Beverley over the coming year.
Moving forward we are excited about the future of Children’s University in the East Riding of Yorkshire and the year ahead to raise the aspirations of even more of our local young people.
