University visits and experiences

Providing campus experiences at one of our many university or college partners.

Engaging subject-specific sessions designed to spark a love of learning, supporting attainment and aspiration.

Careers and employability

Linking higher education to future employment, supporting learners to create pathways and networks.

Confidence, Wellbeing and Resilience

Ensuring young people are well equipped to make a successful journey through education by building their confidence and resilience.

What other schools have said

As a rural school in an area with limited transport links we have found Higher Horizon’s work with us incredibly valuable. Many of our pupils have never seen a university but after a trip to Keele university for an activity with Higher Horizons one pupil commented ‘I’ve never thought about university before but now I want to go.’
