The Access Project is an award-winning charity that works with high-potential students from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing a programme of personalised tuition and in-school support, to help them gain access to selective universities.
Working in partnership with schools since 2008, they have a proven track record of raising attainment and widening access. In schools working with The Access Project, students are almost twice as likely to gain a place at a Russell Group university and 70% more likely to gain a place at a Top Third university than in comparable schools. In the last academic year 89% of Access Project students who applied to Top Third universities were offered a place.
Every child in the UK should have an equal opportunity to achieve their academic ambitions.
