We select our scholars in partnership with their state schools from across the country. Each scholar completes a written application and undergoes an interview with about 30% of applicants admitted to the programme. We have developed relationships with a number of schools and multi academy trusts over the last four years and have a strong retention rate of both individual scholars and schools.

 

Our scholars may face various inequalities but their commitment and academic curiosity, rather than narrow academic criteria are what make them successful in applying to our programme and gaining acceptance to some of the country's most challenging degree courses.

"I guess I always had it in my mind head that it's not a place for me and I'm not gonna see anyone that's like me but being on the programme, I guess it just showed me that these places can be for me if I want them to be."

Who We Fund

 

Working with partner schools, we encourage students who satisfy widening participation criteria to apply. Whilst we consider a range of measures, students usually meet at least one of the following:

Free School Meals

Pupils in state schools in receipt of free school meals. This is one of the most well-established markers of poverty. 

Pupil Premium

Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) as well as children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.

Pupil Premium Plus

Pupil Premium Plus is a specific fund allocated by the government for children who have been in the care system in England and Wales or who have been adopted from English or Welsh state care.

Bursary

Pupils in the state or independent school system who are in receipt of significant bursaries.

First Generation

Pupil is one of the first generation of their family to attend university.

Low Participation Postcodes

Pupils attending schools in places where young people are less likely to enter higher education.
