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.
Our Link Regions
Our link regions are Lewisham and Sutton (London), Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool, Cumbria and Lancashire. The Queen’s College was founded in 1341 to bring students from the North West of England to Oxford. We are proud to be continuing that tradition today!

Our outreach initiatives
We have a multitude of outreach programmes and initiatives that we run here at The Queen’s College. Below is a list of all of the programmes we are currently offering, as well as information about school visits.
If you think you are eligible for one of these programmes and would like to be involved or find out more about them, please email our Access Officer, Molly, at email@example.com. You can also follow us on Instagram @queensoxaccess to keep up-to-date with our outreach work!
North West Science Residential
Our annual North West Science Residential takes place during the Easter holidays. Each year, Y12 students take part in tutorials, get to use the library, speak to current students, take part in sample lectures and visit departments.
We welcome visits from state schools to Queen’s throughout the year. At certain times of the year, our Access Officer travels to our link regions to visit schools and deliver talks about life at university.
The Lewisham Programme
In a joint programme with the University of Cambridge and Lewisham Council, we support students in sixth forms across Lewisham through their Oxford and Cambridge university applications. We conduct workshops on personal statements, interviews and host visit days at each site.
The Access Project
Our partnership with The Access Project supports disadvantaged students in Cumbria and Blackburn with Darwen to make successful applications to elite universities.
