Sutton Trust Summer Schools

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.

Area Link Scheme

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.

School visits to St John's

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.

Access Officer visits to Schools

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.

Current students

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.
