HE+ is a collaborative project between the University of Cambridge and its Colleges, working together with groups of state schools and colleges in 18 regions of the UK. In the 2017-18 academic year, over 3,000 Year 12 students in more than 130 schools and colleges are participating in the initiative.
The HE+ project is unique in that it encourages schools and colleges to collaborate to form regional consortia and to engage their highest-attaining students in a sustained year-long programme that is designed to encourage and prepare these students to make competitive applications to top universities, including the University of Cambridge.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY...
“The webinar was amazing! Everything was so helpful and also gave me a lot of inspiration and motivation for working towards my dreams. Thank you!”
At Trinity, HE+ operates within our Link Areas of Hampshire. It is run in partnership with our hub school, Peter Symonds College, and connect schools across the county in an annual programme.
The programme in Hampshire includes:
- extension classes in a range of core subjects to broaden and deepen understanding of the chosen subject and develop key transferable skills, such as independent learning and research skills;
- student workshops and teacher workshops led by staff from the University of Cambridge, addressing such topics as university choices, making a competitive application and preparing for interview;
- master-classes and seminars delivered by academics from the University of Cambridge.
Taking part in the project gives students at these schools many opportunities to develop their academic skills, understanding and confidence, while also receiving advice and guidance about applying to higher education. Their teachers and advisers also benefit from a closer relationship with other institutions in their area, and partner together to support students in their preparation for selective higher education.
