Far too many able young people substantially underachieve, particularly those from less advantaged backgrounds, creating a major block to improving social mobility in the UK. We are a national leader in tackling this problem - our transformational programmes inspire success.

What's going on at Villiers Park?

This week we are welcoming our Year 12 Scholars from Tyneside for their residential course ‘How to read the media’’. Scholars will develop an appreciation of different types of media and their relevance and application in society.

For anyone interested in supporting our work please visit our Friends of Villiers Park page.

As the country marks the centenary of the First World War we felt it appropriate to share a few stories with you, month by month, from September 1914 to 1918. Find out what our alumni were doing one hundred years ago by visiting our CHIN-WAG page.

The Norfolk Scholars Programme appears on ITV News Anglia

Our Norfolk Scholars Programme, run in partnership with the University of East Anglia, has appeared on ITV News Anglia in response to the report that states that ‘Norwich children ‘almost two years behind’ their peers’.  As a result of the programme, which raises both aspirations and attainment, 100% of the Scholars interviewed said they are now intending to go to university.  We are very proud of you all.
