Inspiring Excellence Programme Impact

“The course was really useful preparation for my Cambridge degree, given the range of content covered and the calibre of the teaching staff.”

Sarah, First in Modern and Medieval Languages, University of Cambridge

The Inspiring Excellence Programme consists of challenging, transformational residential courses and online activities for able young people from across the UK which develop their passion for learning and provide an insight into the knowledge and skills needed to become an expert in a particular field.  Over 26,000 students have benefited from this programme.

On-going alumni survey (begun in 2008) almost 750 students who attended an Inspiring Excellence residential course in 2008 or earlier:

“I would like to express how enthused my daughter was attending the course and how it not only extended her knowledge in the subject but also gave her great confidence through meeting young people from all over the country, giving her a taster of going away to university which was so positive.”
