Our Lady of Lourdes is a Children’s University school! Sefton Children’s University recognises and reward children’s voluntary participation in learning activities and experiences outside the normal school curriculum.

At Our Lady of Lourdes we aim to provide a wide range of clubs that allow children to explore their interests and also cater for all abilities, whilst developing skills and boosting aspirations for the future. We offer a wide range of clubs such as; netball, tag rugby, athletics, football, multi-sports, art, choir, drama, dance, science, board games and many more!

Children attending those activities will gain credits which they can bank in order to gain sufficient credits to graduate. 1 credit is awarded for each hour of attendance. Children who gain sufficient credits by the end of a Key Stage (end of Year 6 or Year 2) will be invited to graduate from Sefton Children’s University at a special ceremony held at a local university.
