Programmes for Primary Schools: The Shooting Stars Programme

Learning for the future: raising aspirations in primary schools

We work with primary schools to help raise aspirations in pupils and make them familiar with the idea that college and university are achievable aims. The children will meet and engage with university students in a variety of contexts so that college and/or university become realistic targets. Normally we work with children in Year 5 or 6 (10-11 year-olds).

If your school is interested in putting together a programme of activities for your Year 6 pupils, please contact us.

Inspiring, aspirational. It gives the children a total sense of aiming higher.
