The Year 12 Summer School is our widening participation programme for young people who have the talent and drive to go to university, but who may need additional support with the application process and understanding of what is possible for them at university and beyond.  

How does the Year 12 Summer School work? 

If a student is eligible for the Year 12 Summer School and are offered a place, they’ll get a taste of what the university experience is like for their subject of interest. 

There will also be social activities on our campus, support with their UCAS application, as well as the chance to stay in one of our halls of residence. 

Not only this but they will also meet current students studying at Leeds Trinity.

"I was so nervous, shy and scared about the week before coming, but I can honestly say that this is the best week I have ever had! I've made some friends for life."
