Childrens University


At Great Tey we are part of the Essex Children’s University.

From the Essex Children’s university website:

We are one of a growing number of Children's Universities around the Country each working to provide children aged 7-14 years (and 5 to 6 year olds with their families) with exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside of the normal school day. Celebrating and rewarding achievements in learning is important to us .... learning can be the satellite navigation to better places in life!


Issued with a Passport to Learning, children can travel around Essex and the UK, collecting stamps in recognition of their learning as they go - after all, travel is what a Passport is for!  Children can collect stamps for attending after-school clubs; for attending groups such as the Brownies, Scouts, Rainbows; for having lessons such as swimming or dance lessons from many approved providers.  Please ask if you would like any further information or visit:
