Applications are now closed for our 2016 teacher summer schools.
Learn how to help your students access top universities
Teachers play a critical role in advising and shaping the aspirations of bright state school pupils from low and middle income backgrounds. Our summer schools support teachers to ensure they have up-to-date knowledge and skills to provide accurate information about access to leading universities, as well as helps them to provide academic challenge to their highest ability students.
The Sutton Trust is delighted to be supporting, thanks to the generous funding of HSBC and our partner universities, the country’s largest programme of subject specific Teacher Summer Schools to boost access to the country’s leading universities.
In 2016, the Sutton Trust will provide this opportunity to 400 teachers across nine participating universities:
- The University of Bristol
- The University of Cambridge
- Durham University
- The University of Oxford
- The University of St Andrews
- University College London
- Imperial College London, Kings College London & The Royal Veterinary College (working in partnership)
The Teacher Summer Schools are completely free to attend and last between one and two days. They are aimed at teachers in schools and colleges which have relatively few students accessing highly selective universities and which serve areas of socio-economic need. Funding for some cover costs is also available to ensure that finance is not a barrier to participation, particularly for teachers from the most challenging schools and colleges.
