Oxplore schools outreach

Oxplore - Oxford's digital outreach portal - is the 'Home of Big Questions', with engaging interdisciplinary resources from across Oxford grouped to foster a sense of intellectual enquiry beyond the school curriculum.

The portal will particularly serve 11-18 year olds from groups currently under-represented at Oxford. Oxplore is a project in the University's Widening Access and Participation team. Some of these young people are already being reached through the college access activities or through other programmes such as the UNIQ summer school, but Oxplore aims to expand these interventions in the digital space.

We're carving out a new way of reaching young people by using the same digital and social technologies they use every day. It can also help to shape the aspirations and potential from Year 7 to Sixth Form - earlier than we do at present.
