Nottingham Potential

Nottingham Potential

Pathway for the region's talent

Nottingham Potential extends the University's outreach initiatives to support many more young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds in reaching their academic potential.

Working with education charity IntoUniversity, Nottingham Potential will expand the University's work with children and young people beginning from as young as Year 2 (age 7) and supporting the transition to secondary school and beyond, by providing a pathway that helps to raise attainment and aspirations.


Nottingham Potential has been made possible by a significant donation from the David Ross Foundation.
