We believe in opportunity for all and we are committed to maintaining fair and equal access to the higher education experience for all those who wish to access it. The outreach activities we deliver are underpinned by this ethos, and focus on raising awareness, aspiration and achievement, as well as the exploration into affordability and educational or career progression through information, advice and guidance.

We want you to feel comfortable making important decisions such as whether or not university is for you. To help with this we offer a range of activities to your school that will develop your awareness of Higher Education and hopefully make you want to go!!
These activities are run over a series of academic years, slowly building up your knowledge of what university is all about and how you get there. They are also designed to help you with your exams and improve your grades too.
We want the very best outcome from your childs education and work hard to ensure that they are able to make an informed decision about their future. We appreciate that not all parents have the knowledge or experience about Higher Education and so we welcome you to join in with events and activites so you can learn and support your child through their journey.
Our activities are designed to increase what we call the 3 As in students - Awareness of Higher Education, Ambition to go there and Attainment to get there. Students are very much selected to participate both on background, but also on ability. We work with students that schools believe have the potential to go onto university but for various reasons may not.
If you would like to learn more about what activities your child may be partaking in then please do get in touch and we would be more than happy to discuss it all with you.
We want to work with you and support your students through their academic journey with the aim of encouraging progression to Higher Education. We specifically work with students from year 7 and typically aim to work with students falling into Polar3 Quintiles 1,2 and 3 where possible, though we are happy to work with entire year groups.
Our activities can be delivered either in school or at the university and travel funding may be available too.
If you have any further queries about the events and activities we offer then please do get in touch.
