Schools Liaison

We want every young person to be inspired to pursue their passion and to develop the skills they will need to succeed in their careers. We work with schools across the region to help with this.

At Bishop Burton, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience college and university life so that they understand what we can offer to them.

As part of this, we work with schools and their students on a number of different initiatives, with a focus on years 10 - 13.

We’re supported by highly qualified lecturers and work closely with schools, colleges, teachers and careers advisors to develop strong relationships for targeted outreach work, ensuring that all young people have opportunities, regardless of their background.

Whilst our focus is on years 10 - 13, we also work with younger year groups through Hull and East Yorkshire's Children's University.

Open Events

We host a range of Open Events throughout each academic year for both Further and Higher Education.
