  • Mission statement

    Villiers Park enables young people to reach their full academic potential and develop a passion for learning. We are committed to fair access – enabling students from less advantaged backgrounds to gain places at leading universities. We accomplish this in four ways:

    • Inspiring Excellence Programme: challenging, subject-specific residential courses for students in Years 12/13

    • Scholars Programme: comprehensive programme of personalised support for disadvantaged students with high academic potential (Year 10 to Year 13) which aims to overcome all the barriers these young people may face

    • Advisory Service: working with schools and colleges to develop outstanding provision for all students

    • Advocacy: influencing policy and strategy on fair access to universities to improve social mobility

    Our vision is a future in which all students with high academic potential experience a challenging and inspirational education, leading to an improvement in social mobility in the UK
