Widening Participation

We know education has the ability to transform lives, and that’s why the GOSH Learning Academy (GLA) are committed to helping develop and support attainment and raising aspirations to ensure all learners have the ability to fulfil their potential whatever their background.

The GLA team, offer stand-alone activities or longer-term projects, to support learners up to the age of 19 years. These are delivered either in the school setting, or at the iconic Great Ormond Street Hospital site.

All activities are designed to enhance learning and to be able to offer new opportunities that schools may not be able to provide. This is particularly useful for learners from a widening participation background, who may need encouragement to realise their potential or discover their goals and aspirations.

With more than 10 secondary schools working with Great Ormond Street Hospital in Camden, and the number steadily increasing, the team are keen to continue to offer more opportunities and to support young people in reaching their goal, whatever that might be.

Please contact Young.Visitors@gosh.nhs.uk for more information.

We offer both in school, and on-site activities at the hospital to help prepare students for life beyond school. Please find out more about our offer below:
