Pupils from Cawston Primary School and Ashlawn School have celebrated their graduation.

Youngsters took part in The Children’s University scheme, an international, critically acclaimed, extra-curricular programme which aims to promote social mobility by taking learning outside the classroom.

Rugby MP Mark Pawsey presented awards to pupils who had achieved over 100 hours of extra-curricular learning through the Children’s University.

Mr Pawsey said: “I was delighted to join pupils from Cawston Primary and Ashlawn School at the 14th annual Warwickshire Children’s University Graduation Ceremony at the University of Warwick and to recognise their incredible achievements outside of their usual school hours.

“Every year the event goes from strength to strength and from speaking with local teachers and pupils it was clear how much they value the programme and how it fosters a great love of learning outside of the classroom.

“The students who graduated this year should be incredibly proud of their achievements and I hope many more local youngsters and schools participate in next year’s programme.”
