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 helping them to provide academic support to their highest ability students.

The Sutton Trust is delighted to be supporting, thanks to the generous funding of HSBC and our partner university, the country’s largest programme of subject specific Teacher Summer Schools to boost access to the country’s leading universities.

In 2018, the Sutton Trust will provide this opportunity to 80 teachers, with a two-day residential at the University of Oxford from 9th-10th July 2018.

The Teacher Summer School is completely free to attend, with accommodation provided for two nights in an Oxford college. The programme is 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.

Applications open on 1st February 2018.
