Our previous work has shown significant impact.
For example, 86% of Year 13s applied to university in 2021 versus national average of 43.2% of 18 year olds domiciled in England (source: UCAS).
Our young people have progressed to a wide range of universities across the county and overseas from the University of Cambridge to Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands) to the University of York.
A number have successfully secured higher apprenticeships at Aviva and other similar organisations.
