Continued collaboration with IntoUniversity
Following on from last year’s success, our collaboration with IntoUniversity returns. However, this year is like no other.
IntoUniversity is an organisation with centres all over the country and their aim is to provide support for vulnerable and disadvantaged children in the form of education, activities and much more. In 2018-19 IntoUniversity made the work between 2000 volunteers and 42,500 students possible, operating predominantly in disadvantaged areas, where young people are over four times less likely to enter higher education. Despite this, since 2016, over 68% of young adults who worked with IntoUniversity progressed to universities, with 19% of those being Russell Group Universities. And so, under the meticulous eye of Mr Innes, a pupil committee led by Sixth Form pupil, Archie, and a group of 40 determined Junior Sixth formers, and they have set out to help students of IntoUniversity with their GCSE content.
As pupils are currently unable to go to IntoUniversity’s community centres around London, they have begun planning short videos, due to be filmed later this half term. These videos will be based on a variety of subjects including ‘Picking your A-Levels’, ‘Languages’, ‘Core subjects’ such as maths and sciences and much more! The videos will be uploaded to an ‘IntoUniversity Youtube Channel’ so that pupils will be able to create, edit and upload their videos from the comfort of their own homes.
We hope to carry on working together with IntoUniversity next year and we are optimistic that next year, the current Fifth form will be able to work with the students in person, in one of IntoUniversity’s many centres across London.
