RAISE

students groupwork

The Raising Aspirations in Secondary Education programme is designed  to support students from year 7 to year 12 by raising aspirations and breaking down perceived barriers to Higher Education. 

We have a range of fun, interactive workshops and competitive subject based quizzes which will help to raise students’ motivation and commitment to secondary education, and in the long term raise achievement levels at GCSE and A level.
