As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to engage with schools, a programme has been developed to simplify communication with all schools in the United Kingdom. Each Local Authority is linked to an Oxford College to ensure that every school in the country has a first point of contact within the University.

Queen’s is formally linked with the following Local Authorities:

Blackburn with Darwen

Queen’s is very keen to develop its programmes with schools in its link regions and actively engages in activities to achieve this. Schools are encouraged to contact our Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer directly at for more information or to discuss new initiatives.  

Our outreach initiatives

As well as organising regular visits to and from schools, Queen’s is also committed to developing an ongoing programme of targeted events for link area schools. 

If you think that you are eligible for any of these programmes and would like to get involved please contact our Schools Liaison and Outreach Officer at You can also keep up to date with our events and activities by following @QueensOutreach on Twitter!
