St Peter’s welcomes contact from potential applicants, teachers, parents, or Alumni of the college who wish to work with young people. The college has a dedicated Schools Liaison Officer whose active programme of work aims to support the needs of potential applicants of a variety of ages.
St Peter’s College welcomes applications from qualified young people of all conditions and walks of life. Institutions flourish where diversity is celebrated, and the inclusive and all-embracing learning environment at St Peter’s should be an option for consideration by all talented young people.
As Schools Liaison Officer, I am responsible for working with young people in the United Kingdom and those who influence and encourage them to ensure that this message is heard.
What I do
I am the designated first point of contact between Oxford University and around 300 state schools across Merseyside, North Wales, the Isle of Man, Enfield, and Waltham Forest.
I try to facilitate opportunities for talented young people to interact with current undergraduate students, academics at St Peter’s, or some of the unique resources this University has to offer.
In recent months this has been executed by visiting state schools, attending local authority events, and liaising with members of local and national government.
Please get in touch to find out more about how I could work with young people in your local area.

Each Oxford college is linked to a Local Authority to ensure that each state school has a first point of contact within the University. This measure is designed to improve the way in which the University communicates information, advice and guidance to teachers.
The scheme does not have any bearing on the Oxford admissions process and does not influence whether a college offers a candidate a place. It is not intended to replace any existing contact a school may have with a particular college or department.
Under this scheme, St Peter's College has been linked to Local Authorities in Merseyside, North Wales, the Isle of Man, and the London Boroughs of Enfield and Waltham Forest.
For the academic year 2018/19, the college proposes to offer a multi-school scheme of work to state schools in Merseyside, the Isle of Man, and the London Boroughs of Enfield and Waltham Forest, while supporting the efforts of the Seren Network in North Wales. We believe that a multi-school approaches enables the college to spread its work effectively and fairly, bringing groups of highly motivated and able young people together.
To get a flavor of the work we plan to do, please see this booklet.
Student Ambassadors assist the Schools Liaison Officer with many events. They come from all sorts of backgrounds, and their studies cover a variety of subjects. Talking to them at events such as Open Days will give you a real insight into what it is like to be a student studying at Oxford, and of life at St Peter’s in particular.

Ignite was developed by the Careers Service at Oxford for use in classrooms. The web-based programme provides age-group-specific lesson-activities of varying lengths. This programme was developed with the aim of increasing confidence, self-awareness, and assertiveness in students.
Oxplore is ideal for students and staff as a way of poising, addressing, and discussing ‘big questions’ in a fresh way. This web-based programme generates at random questions that should prove fruitful for small-scale debates across the curriculum. Students can also access this themselves on the way into school. The college is able to provide a number of workshops.
