Access and Outreach

The Admissions Team at Trinity Hall is committed to admitting academically able students from all backgrounds. As part of the Schools Liaison Initiative, we work with schools to provide up-to-date knowledge of the admissions process and to raise aspirations, particularly among individuals, families or schools with little or no tradition of Oxbridge or higher education.

Trinity Hall can host school trips to the College or visit schools/colleges to deliver talks and sessions. We also coordinate or are involved in a number of outreach projects and programmes specifically targeted at improving the progression of people from under-represented backgrounds to top universities.

We are open to working with all UK schools and colleges; however, through the University of Cambridge’s Area Links Scheme, Trinity Hall places particular focus on outreach and schools liaison work with schools/colleges in the South West Local Authorities of:

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

From a school or college in one of these areas? We are your formal first point-of-contact! However, the Area Links Scheme is not intended to be prescriptive and all Cambridge Colleges welcome contact from teachers and potential applicants across the UK, and beyond.
