After collectively clocking up thousands of hours of extracurricular activity, more than 150 students graduated from the Children’s University on Tuesday.
In front of proud parents and staff, the dedicated students received their graduation awards at a special ceremony held at the University of Northampton.

Bronze awards are given to students who complete 30 hours, Silver awards go to the students who clock up more than 65 hours and Gold awards are for 100 hours and above.
Bronze certificates are given to students with more than 130 hours and silver certificates to students with more than 165 hours.
Year 7 student Evie Berry gained credits for taking part in craft club, keep fit, maths club and Manga Mania.
She said: “I have really enjoyed the clubs that I have been involved in and really enjoyed the Manga convention that we went to.
Evie’s mum Lorna Robison said: “I am really impressed with the after school clubs that are on offer at Corby Business Academy.
“Evie has taken part in a number of clubs and has really developed because of them.”
“It is a great experience for the students to be able to come to the university and I am really proud of Evie’s achievement.”
