Who are we?
University of Oxford colleges have been working with schools across the North East for many years. Last year we visited xx schools and over xx students from the NE either visited the University of Oxford or was involved in one of our outreach projects.
The Access and Outreach Team at Oxford for North East, is made up of staff from Christ Church, Trinity College and St Anne’s College. We are working together to make the most of our access resources and to provide better support for the students and schools that need it the most.

Lincoln College is also running an access project in conjunction with Oxford for North East.
Together our aim is to encourage more students from the North East to make successful applications to the University of Oxford.
Oxford for North East prioritises outreach work with schools with lower rates of progression to Higher Education, to the Russell Group universities and to the University of Oxford.
We also prioritise engagement with other under-represented and disadvantaged groups of students, such as those on free school meals and children from military families.
In 2019/20 we expect to work more closely with schools and colleges in the following areas:
Gateshead, Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland, Cleveland, Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar, Stockton on Tees.
We are also developing partnerships with:
- Local authorities
- Multi Academy Trusts
- Community Organisations
- Local universities
- Social mobility organisations
Please note that if you or your school do not fall into our access categories, there is still plenty of advice and support available for you here and on the University website.
All schools and colleges have a named point of contact within University of Oxford who will be happy to provide information and advice on admissions and outreach. If you do not know who this is, please contact us via the contact form (LINK).
We set out our access programme on this website and we will update this every year. We do not expect to make radical changes overnight but hope to build lasting partnerships with schools across the region that will deliver benefits for their whole school community as well as for our University.
We will also evaluate the impact of our outreach across the North East and publish an annual impact report on this website.
