- College Life
St John’s College is committed to admitting the most talented and committed students, regardless of their social or educational background. The College employs a full-time Access Officer whose role is to help raise the aspirations of students with little or no experience of Cambridge and to provide information, advice and guidance to those considering their higher education options.
If you are a teacher and would like to discuss arranging a visit or event for your students please don't hesitate to contact the Access Officer using the details below.

The Sutton Trust Summer Schools are free subject-specific residential courses for Year 12 students from UK state-maintained schools, for which St John's is a host College.
As part of the University of Cambridge’s Area Link scheme, St John’s works with six local education authorities in particular (although not exclusively) – Blackburn with Darwen, Bolton, Rochdale, Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, and Lambeth.
We are very keen to welcome groups of students into St John's, on both day and residential visits, and can provide presentations and workshops covering a range of topics including life at St John’s and Cambridge, advice about choosing a course and college, information about the admissions process, and student finance. In addition, it is possible to organise other educational and social activities in and around the College.
The Access Officer is also available to visit Schools, Sixth Forms and Colleges to talk to students, teachers or parents on a similar range of topics to those listed above.
If you are a current student at St John's and have been in contact with a school, the Access Officer would be very grateful if you could take the time to provide some details. This allows us to keep accurate records of which schools have had contact with St John's.
