School Volunteering

Students in Schools


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.


Applications for our Students in Schools programme will open September 2021.?


Student Scholars


What is a Student Scholar?

Are you passionate about a particular topic or subject? Want to enhance the learning experience of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds? Or simply make a difference during these times? If so, then you may be the perfect ‘Student Scholar’!

As we continue to adapt to a more virtual world, we find ourselves exploring new ways to connect with others and make a difference. This project invites our students from all campuses to inspire the next generation by creating and sharing engaging, educational virtual content. This initiative is looking for students who can film short, snappy and engaging videos on a topic of their choice to share with Secondary students, to support their learning and provide further resources for the classroom. Whatever your passion, so long as it fits the Secondary curriculum, then we would love to hear from you!

Applications for this role will open in September 2021.
