Information for schools and collegesTransforming lives, communities and businesses for over 125 years
Since we began in 1892, we have been dedicated to serving our local community, creating partnerships and forging new opportunities with the people of Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham.
From helping young people develop their skills, to providing businesses and communities with advice and guidance, supporting our local community is at the heart of what we do.
We support anyone with the potential to study at university level, whether you have family commitments, disabilities, were in care or are simply the first person in your family to go to university.
We also partner with local colleges and schools to introduce people to the exciting opportunities available with a university qualification.
OfS Access and Participation Plan
Partnership agreements give FE and Sixth Form Colleges access to the full range of our outreach activities, as well as give a framework to academic exchanges that enable curriculum matching and development.
Our outreach activities focus on our priority catchment areas in the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. We are also working with young people and mature learners in key feeder schools and colleges in the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Croydon, Greenwich, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Wandsworth.
We have identified 18 local schools that match our desire for providing a quality student experience. They all demonstrate exceptional added value for their students. We've made a long-term commitment to support their efforts to maximise their students' aspirations and achievement.
We're happy to consider requests for outreach activities from educational institutions outside of our catchment boroughs.
