Villiers Park Educational Trust


Charity Name: Villiers Park Educational Trust

Villiers Park Educational Trust is a national charity that helps very able young people achieve their full academic potential and get into leading universities. We are committed to fair access – enabling students from less advantaged backgrounds to compete on equal terms.

Our experience and expertise in working with gifted students has been built up over many years of working with students, teachers and lecturers as well as leaders from schools, colleges and universities.

Over 17,000 Year 12/13 students have taken part in our residential courses with a large percentage from less advantaged backgrounds. More than 95% of participants have gone on to university. In 2009, 99.5% of our delegates rated their course good or excellent with over 81% considering it to be excellent. We are very proud of these outcomes.

Two years ago we launched the Villiers Park Scholars Programme, a holistic, four-year programme for students with high academic potential from less advantaged backgrounds. This programme is proving to be a great success and we hope the government might consider it an example of good outreach and work with us to roll it out to other regions of the country.
