Schools & Outreach

At Trinity College

"Trinity’s access work embodies our values as a forward-looking, inclusive community. We want our college to reflect the widest diversity of talent and we are committed to ensuring that the Oxford experience is accessible to anyone with the potential to thrive here, regardless of their background or prior educational experience. The participation of so many of our students and staff in our outreach activity says much about our commitment to seeking out and supporting talented young people who have the ability to succeed at the highest level, and the qualities and aspiration to make a positive difference to our world."

Our Access

Activities and Priorities

Work in our Link Regions

To simplify communication between UK schools and the University, every school in the country is linked with an Oxford college. This not only allows Oxford to get to know schools and colleges in specific regions better, but also gives them a more personal and direct way of staying in touch with the University.

We run an active schools & outreach programme working with schools, students and teachers Oxfordshire & Milton Keynes and those in the North East of England in Cleveland, Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Stockton on Tees in the North East. We also work in partnership with St Anne's College and Christ Church as members of the Oxford for North East consortium to support schools and prospective applicants across the North East of England.

Our Access Priorities

The Access Team at Trinity College prioritise outreach engagement with schools on the basis of specific needs related to lower rates of progression to higher education, to the Russell Group universities and to the University of Oxford. We also prioritise engagement with under-represented and disadvantaged groups of students. If you or your school do not fall into these categories there is still plenty of advice and support available to you and your students here on our website pages and the central Oxford University website. You are most welcome to contact us directly for more guidance on how to access that support.
