Keble and The Access Project
Last September, Keble College launched a partnership with education charity The Access Project and Colmers School in Rendal. Eight months on, the Colmers School programme has proved a great success, recording the highest attendance of one-to-one tutoring (91%) out of all participating Access Project schools, which are situated across the West Midlands and London.
Thirty-six Colmers pupils in Years 10-13 have participated in the project thus far, with over 250 tutorials having taking place. Twelve Keble Alumni and one current Keble student are matched with students at the school.
The Access Project offers bright young students from disadvantaged backgrounds free weekly tuition in the subjects they need most help with, along with expert and tailored guidance through the university application process.
