Precious time has been lost, adversely affecting student potential, confidence, exam results and access to learning.

Attainment raising is now more crucial than ever.

We want to introduce…


Make it Count is a multi-strand attainment project that will see us work with schools from KS3-5 on a lots of different attainment raising activities, delivered both online and in person (we hope!).

Click below to find out more about each strand. Development work is on-going – more detail will be added over time. We’ll be in touch with our partner schools when bookings are open for each strand.

Year 8-9 - subject tutoring


Online tutoring for a select number of priority schools in English, Maths and Science. Tutoring will be delivered by current UEA students who are studying relevant subjects and are training to provide support to young people. Sessions will be in small groups and will start in January 2021. Bookings are now closed.

Is your school signed up? Great news - we've made a dedicated page that has all of the information you need to know.

Year 11 - subject tutoring


GCSE Maths and English Language online tutoring delivered by qualified teachers. We want to support young people with the potential to attend university, who are in need of additional support to attain the gateway qualifications of grade 4 in Maths and English Language. Sessions will start in January.

Nominations are now open - we're asking teachers to nominate their students who would benefit most from additional support. More information about students eligibility, how to nominte and what the tutoring sessions will involve is available by clicking the link below.

Year 13 / L3 Y2 - study skills tutoring


This study skills programme will help equip young people with the key skills they need to support their current studies, as well as those which will help with academic transition to higher education. Loads of different topics will be covered, all led by our team of friendly higher education experts. Sessions will start in January.

Bookings close on 7 December 2020 – don't miss out, apply online today.

Year 9-11 - writers in schools


Creative Writing at UEA turns 50 this year and we're celebrating in lots of different ways. 

This year, young people will work alongside our tutors to create a 'living book'. The living book project works with Mitch Johnson, a professional children’s author, and a team of creative technologists, including an animator, to create a virtual fantasy world themed around how the world will be affected and altered through climate change. Mitch, however, needs help. Each school team will be given a specific brief relating to some aspect of the project and asked to generate content in response to it. This will then be incorporated into the final design. The world co-created by young people and Mitch will go on public exhibition, both online and (hopefully – COVID situation depending) in the Forum, Norwich, from Spring 2021.

Year 7-13 - language ambassadors


French, Spanish and Japanese speakers who are current UEA students work directly with your students to support their speaking and listening schools. This year, the whole programme will be delivered virtually – students in years 7-13 will receive 1-2 hours support a week, in a mixture of individual and group sessions.
