HE+ Project

HE+ is a collaborative project between the University of Cambridge and its Colleges, working together with groups of state schools and colleges in 18 regions of the UK.  In the 2017-18 academic year, over 3,000 Year 12 students in more than 130 schools and colleges are participating in the initiative.

The HE+ project is unique in that it encourages schools and colleges to collaborate to form regional consortia and to engage their highest-attaining students in a sustained year-long programme that is designed to encourage and prepare these students to make competitive applications to top universities, including the University of Cambridge.

What is the goal of HE+?

The overall goal of the project is to encourage and prepare more academically-able students to make competitive applications to top universities, including the University of Cambridge.

Hull and East Yorkshire HE+ consortium

This project is for Year 12 students who attend state schools and colleges participating in HE+ and who have the potential to make competitive applications to top universities. At King's we are working with our HE+ consortium in our link areas in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire, connectiong schools accross the regions to run an annual programme of academic masterclasses, information and guidance sessions, and a visit to Cambridge University. We are running this in partnership with our hub school, South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College. 

Taking part in the project gives students many opportunities to develop their academic skills, understanding, and confidence, while also receiving advice and guidance about applying to higher education.

Teachers at schools and colleges involved in HE+ also benefit from a closer relationship with other institutions in their area, and partner together to support students in their preparation for selective higher education.

If you are a teacher at a maintained sector school in Hull/East Riding of Yorkshire with an attached Sixth Form that is not currently involved in our HE+ consortium and would like more information about this collaboration project, please get in touch with slo@kings.cam.ac.uk
