In 2021, Future Quest Primary was created to work with primary aged children in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. In partnership with South Gloucestershire Council and Children’s University, Future Quest Primary allows children to explore opportunities outside of their main curriculum, engage in meaningful outreach and access role models and experiences in higher education.
Future Quest Primary
Future Quest Primary works with primary aged children from 4 – 11 and their teachers to provide high quality outreach opportunities. These include Bristol and South Gloucestershire Children’s University; the Book Explorers project and opportunities to engage in faculty outreach from UWE Bristol. Funding and support have been provided by South Gloucestershire Council and UWE Bristol
Bristol and South Gloucestershire Children’s University
Children’s University works with primary schools in Bristol and South Gloucestershire and encourages all children to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills. With their Children’s University Passport in hand, children in the programme are able to earn credits for taking part in activities outside of the main curriculum. At the end of each academic year, children who have earned sufficient learning credits will be able to ‘graduate’ from the programme with a special ceremony at their participating school.
Future Quest and the Bristol and South Gloucestershire Children’s University team have created a booklet to support transition from Year 6 into secondary education.
