School Volunteering

Students in Schools


Applications for Students in Schools have now opened! To apply, please complete this online application form.


Students in Schools offers the opportunity for students to volunteer in local primary and secondary schools across Cheshire and the Wirral.  Our volunteers will provide support to school pupils in a variety of ways including one-to-one mentoring, tutoring, classroom support, paired reading groups and much more! We look for volunteers who can inspire children and young people to reach their full potential as part of the University's commitment to Widening Participation.


The Students in Schools programme aims to support young people to:

  1. Raise their standard of academic performance.

  2. Raise their awareness of Higher Education opportunities.

  3. Develop greater self-esteem, motivation, confidence, and persistence.

Primary School Volunteering

In Primary schools, Volunteers aim to help improve reading ages, prepare students for the transition into secondary education and develop greater self-esteem, motivation, confidence, persistence and application.

Secondary School Volunteering

In Secondary schools, volunteers could be supporting pupils by offering practical, unbiased and friendly advice, guidance for organisational skills and time management, help with school work or study and revision skills and help young people to explore their post GCSE options.
