About us

The Access Partnerships team works with a range of external partners to support the progression of talented state school pupils, particularly those from under-represented groups, into higher education.

Building strong collaborative relationships allows us to maximise our potential impact on the lives of young people and to ensure that best practice is shared between organisations.

All Access Partnerships projects share a common belief in the importance of supporting informed decision-making amongst young people and in providing them with inspiring opportunities to engage with higher education.

We offer a range of activity for young people and their parents/carers throughout the year, both in collaboration with our partners and independently. We have a particular focus on supporting local students in Years 9-11.

Further opportunities for local and national post-16 students (Year 12-13) are provided by our Supported Progression and Sutton Trust programmes.
