proud to be a children’s university centre

swim! are excited to announce that we are now an official Children’s University Centre. CU is a charity that encourages children across the UK to participate in extra-curricular activities in and outside of school.

They offer over 100,000 children aged 5+ the opportunity to experience a range of activities whilst logging each new adventure and even attending their own graduation ceremony!

As stated on their website, “Research shows that participation in extra-curricular activities can positively impact on attainment, increase a pupil’s positive identification with school, and build self-confidence and resilience”.

If your little one is already a member, simply bring your child’s CU Passport to your next lesson for our team to stamp!
