A group of our Year 12 students joined others at Kings College London for the launch of The Elephant Group’s Access Programme. Elephant Access is a widening participation programme for 6th Form students, which brings together regional hubs of schools and elite universities to improve aspiration, attainment and applications.
Elephant Access use collective knowledge and expertise to offer a high-quality, data-driven and flexible programme to ensure our target students access the most selective universities. Elephant Access provides a ‘minimum entitlement’ of 16 activities and experiences for students, delivering many at central and regional level, and providing resources, guidance and content to support schools with in-house delivery where most appropriate. Activities include day conferences, a residential summer school in Year 12, course application guidance, preparation for university admissions tests, trips and other experiences to broaden students’ horizons.
