King’s College London has relaunched its two-year widening participation programme K+, supporting high-potential high school students across London and Essex who may require additional support to access top university places.


As with previous years, the 2021 programme offers specific guidance to promising students in years 12 and 13 from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller backgrounds, with a programme of tutoring, advice, and application support.

“Gypsy, Roma and Traveller students, fully inclusive of Showmen and Boater communities, are priority groups for King’s College London Widening Participation Department,” said a statement from the school. “This means we give priority places on our programmes and extra support for students that join us.”

Sharing details of the course online, Future 4 Fairgrounds said “this has been so successful in the last few years, and each year we see more people from travelling communities head to university from K+.”

“As well as all of the amazing experiences and application support students get through K+, GRTS students will also receive extra support, provided by the global leading law firm Linklaters.”

The additional support includes free online A-Level tutoring, careers advice, experience and tips from leading professionals, and access to funds to attend events and activities.

Applications are open until 29 October through the King’s College website.
