Halewood University

What is Halewood University?

 

‘Halewood University’ is our exciting, new format for extra curricular clubs at Halewood C of E. We are hoping that it will provide opportunities for children to develop new interests, hobbies and skills, and help children to develop key life skills. Already we have over 100 students from KS2 taking part in the programme. We want our pupils to believe in themselves, to have ambition and be the best they can be!

 

The ‘Halewood University’ programme actively seeks to promote a self-belief that if you want to go to university and you are intelligent, work hard and are resilient - you can succeed. (In saying this, we know that higher education is not the only pathway to success, and many career options demand a different route.)

 

Life Skills

 

Halewood University aims to give children key life skills that will enable them to be successful in the future. We focus on 5 life skills throughout the programme:

 

  1. Teamwork
  2. Problem Solving
  3. Communication
  4. Resilience
  5. Volunteering

 

These life skills feature throughout all modules, as well as having specific life skills sessions throughout the programme.

 

Graduation

 

Children who take part in Halewood University will graduate at the end of each year if they successfully complete all elements of the programme. Each year that children complete will result in a higher level of graduation:
