The Bartlett


School Outreach at The Bartlett

The Bartlett Outreach Team works with schools by hosting sessions and events at The Bartlett so that your students can visit our campus and facilities. We can also deliver academic sessions and workshops at your school.

To widen access to The Bartlett for underrepresented groups, we prioritise working with schools that meet two or more of our criteria:

  • Non-selective state schools 
  • High proportion of Free School Meals/Pupil Premium Intake
  • Low performing schools
  • Postcode data showing levels of deprivation and low progression to higher education 
  • High-achieving students with a keen interest in creative subjects (design technology, art or any that has expressed to teachers that they are interested in architecture, planning or construction)

We encourage schools to select students who they feel may benefit the most from events, by considering factors such as free school meal eligibility and potential to attend university.
