The charity helping northern state students reach our best universities

Reach Higher


A limited number of schools in northern England have been chosen to take part in the fourth Reach Higher programme. Between 2014 and 2016, almost 90% of students went on to UK top-12 universities. Fifty-eight per cent of our Cambridge applicants won offers, against a national average of 20%.

Reach Higher is built round week-long residential schools hosted by Westminster School, London and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. They are led by exceptional teachers and academics. The third part of the programme sees a student allocated a subject expert for an intensive programme of tuition, delivered via Skype.

Students are taught knowledge and subject skills which take them beyond the curriculum and prepare them to take their part in the world’s intellectual conversation at our leading universities.


We are accepting applications from schools to take part in our larger 2018 programme. Places are limited. Please contact for more details.
