Notre Dame is Cambridge Hub

We’re pleased to announce that Notre Dame is now a Cambridge HE+ hub for Leeds!

The University of Cambridge HE+ project is designed to academically challenge the brightest young people, to raise their aspirations and to encourage applications to selective universities. The project is collaborative, enabling the University to work with its choice of state schools and colleges. HE+ is a year-long programme for lower sixth students, which includes masterclasses, guidance sessions and a visit to the University.

We launched the HE+ project at college on Tuesday 26 November. The 40 lower sixth students who were selected to be part of it spent the day attending lectures and a seminar. Over the year they will have four days of events in Leeds and a residential in Cambridge.

Competition amongst students at the Leeds and Wakefield schools and colleges who are part of the project has been very intense. HE+ will offer those selected from Notre Dame the support and guidance to give them the very best chance of attending a world-class university.

Enhancing Excellence Coordinator Ms Kitty Graham said, ‘This is a great opportunity, which will help our students to get into top universities, whether or not they decide to apply for Cambridge. I’m looking forward to finding out more as the year progresses.’
