College Area Links Scheme

As part of the University of Cambridge’s Area Links Scheme, each college has been allocated an area to focus its Widening Participation efforts on, to build sustained relationships between the college and schools in the region.

Trinity Hall accordingly works with the South West Local Authorities of:

  • Bath and North East Somerset
  • Bristol
  • North Somerset
  • Somerset
  • South Gloucestershire

Tailored events, visits and resources are available to schools in our Link Area. If you are a student or a teacher at one of these schools looking to find out more, please get in touch with the Schools & Colleges Liaison Officer.

The Waymarkers Programme

We are keen to work with UK-based schools with Year 10 and 11 students who identify as being Gypsy, Traveller, Roma, Showmen, or Boater. As part of the programme, we will

  • visit schools to speak to the students there, with sessions for members of their families too
  • organise trips to Trinity Hall so that the students can experience life in Cambridge
  • organise webinars to provide advice about how to prepare for university (e.g., how to make good A-Level choices)
