The LSE Widening Participation team works in partnership with a number of organisations to meet common aims.


IntoUniversity provides local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. At each local centre, IntoUniversity offers an innovative programme that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration.

The LSE Widening Participation Team are partnering with IntoUniversity to sponsor the delivery of the Brent Centre Primary Focus Programme.


Uni Connect is a project funded by the Office for Students (OfS). It aims to increase awareness amongst schools/college learners of higher education opportunities, supporting them to make informed decisions about their futures. The LSE Widening Participation team supports Uni Connect projects in London through our membership of AccessHE.


 The Sutton Trust

The LSE Widening Participation team works with the Sutton Trust to deliver Pathways to Law and Pathways to Banking and Finance for Year 12 and 13 students, as well as the Introduction to Pathways activities for Year 10 and 11 students. The Sutton Trust is a foundation which works to improve social mobility in the UK through programmes, research and policy advocacy. The WP team have been delivering schemes in collaboration with the Trust for over ten years. 

Advancing Access

LSE is part of the Advancing Access consortium. We work with other leading UK universities to provide free professional development resources and events for school/college teachers and advisers, helping them support student progression. The Advancing Access website provides best practice examples and how-to guides for teachers that can be used as part of professional development activities and in the classroom. 

School Partnerships with TeamUp

LSE works with education charity TeamUp to provide in-depth GCSE mathematics tuition sessions. These are delivered by trained LSE students and target pupils at our two partner schools, Harris Academy St John’s Wood and Barking Abbey School.
