Children’s University Northumberland

Northumberland Children’s University is managed by Leading Link as part of our work to ‘Maximise Potential of Children and Young People’ We do this by offering as many opportunities and experiences as possible with our partners to raise aspirations.

We work closely a variety of partners within Northumberland and Newcastle (listed below) and currently have 20 schools in Northumberland signed up to be part of the initiative predominately in Blyth, Bedlington, Lynemouth, Linton, Ellington, Red Row and Whittingham but this list is expanding. 

We work closely with key decision makers for Children and Young People including the Children’s Services at the Local Authority and Sports Northumberland to ensure that are offer remains current.
