COVID-19
Keeping students and staff safe is of paramount importance to us so we are keeping a close eye on government guidance and the developing situation. If we are unable to deliver the programmes face to face, we will have a digital programme of support through our new platform Sutton Trust Online.

 

Having successfully launched Sutton Trust Online last year and run our Summer Schools on it we are confident that this year’s programmes, however they take place, will be hugely useful for you as you make decisions about the next steps in your educational journey.
Quote by Sam, Whitley Bay, UK Summer School 2008 - University of Cambridge
My time on the UK Summer School was a completely transformational experience. Beyond what I learned in the classes, the whole experience raised my confidence. Sam, Whitley Bay, UK Summer School 2008 - University of Cambridge
Quote by Hannah-Mai Flynn, Tadworth, Pathways to Law 2014
The experience taught me that I preferred learning on the job and that I wanted to work, instead of going to university to just study. A year ago, I wouldn’t have thought of doing an apprenticeship and this option would have been completely off the cards, however this time I received support and encouragement – from my parents and my teachers. Hannah-Mai Flynn, Tadworth, Pathways to Law 2014
The programme helped show me that university is definitely the right choice for me and that I can cope with moving to an entirely new place and make friends without having to worry at all. If you’re still on the fence, I'd say go for it. You have nothing to lose and an amazing experience waiting for you and you will meet the best people. Jacob, Warrington, UK Summer Schools 2019, University of Nottingham
Quote by Emily Gotch, the Cotswolds, UK Summer School 2013
My week at Cambridge University was game-changing. I absolutely loved the vibe: everyone’s curiosity and passion for the topics. Learning from and discussing human behaviour with world leaders in the field was awe-inspiring. Emily Gotch, the Cotswolds, UK Summer School 2013
