Supporting Years 7-11

From workshops to residentials, our range of activities for West Midlands secondary schools offer opportunities for local pupils to discover more about higher education and make the best choice for their future. We work with state schools across the region to raise aspirations and motivation, with a wide range of support available from Year 7 to Year 11.

COVID-19 update

All on-campus visits and events have been cancelled or postponed in line with the government’s advice to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We’re working hard on planning alternative online activities that students can take part in from their own homes.
