Schools and colleges in our Link Areas are able to participate in our Outreach Buses which run for different year groups throughout the year.
You can register interest for one of our Outreach Buses here.
Teachers are requested to nominate 15 highly-able students from their school to attend a fully-funded enriching day visit to Cambridge. Each school group must be accompanied by one or two members of school staff. A maximum of four schools can participate on each Outreach Bus. To be notified of our next Outreach Bus please sign up to our Teacher Newsletter and follow us on Twitter.
If the timing of our Outreach Bus is not convenient for your school, or you would like to bring a greater number of students (up to 30), we may be able to facilitate a morning or afternoon visit to Homerton College subject to availability.
For our Link Area schools in Scotland we regularly visit the area to visit schools and run an annual Scottish Webinar Series. Please sign up to our Teacher Newsletter and follow us on Twitter to receive further details.
Homerton College Outreach Buses
The premise is simple: a coach (paid for by Homerton’s Access and Outreach Team) will drive to a Homerton Link Area to pick up groups of highly-able students. The coach will then drive to Homerton, where we will deliver an all-expenses-paid day including an academic taster session, admissions information session, an informal Q&A and tour of Homerton led by current undergraduates, as well as a free lunch in our New Dining Hall. At the end of the day, the coach leaves Homerton to drive students and teachers back to their schools.
We can invite four schools to bring up to 15 of their most highly able students, along with one or two accompanying members of school staff per school group. Places are allocated on a rolling basis. Outreach Buses are run throughout the year for students in Year 9, 10, 11 and 12. We will prioritise schools who are most in need of our support and who have not had this opportunity before.
We run two sets of Outreach Buses:
- Outreach Buses for students in Year 9, 10 and 11 in Autumn and Spring
- Outreach Buses for Year 12 in the Summer
To view the dates for our Upcoming Outreach Buses, check the Events section at the bottoms of this page. We will update this when applications open.
Individual morning or afternoon visits
If your school is from one of our Link Areas and you would like to bring more of your students to Homerton College than can be accommodated on an Outreach Bus, we may be able to offer a morning or an afternoon visit with an information session, a Q&A with current students and a tour of the College. You would have to organise and pay for your own transport and lunch, but we can offer you a room for you to have lunch in. Please note we have very limited availability for these kinds of visits.
Please contact our Schools Liaison Officer on 01223 747293 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about this.
