Francis Holland School contributes to a toolkit for schools to help less advantaged pupils access the top universities.

Francis Holland is one of a number of schools to produce this 'toolkit' of strategies and case-studies. These suggestions and ideas have successfully enabled access to selective universities for young people from less-advantaged backgrounds.

A diverse group of school and college leaders has been meeting together and with representatives from selective universities with the purpose of increasing social mobility via widening participation in higher education. This short briefing document seeks to highlight the good practice which already exists and to share it for the benefit of all.


To widen access to the top universities to pupils from less advantaged backgrounds.

This toolkit has proved to be successful in the past.
