Teachers are invaluable partners in our work to improve access to higher education, Cambridge, and Clare.

We would love to meet you and your students soon. Learn more about what we can offer you and your school below. 

Teacher Days in Cambridge

Clare College holds two Teacher Days in Cambridge each year for teachers and advisors from state schools and colleges across the UK.

Our next Teacher Days will be held on the 8 March 2024 and 28 June 2024. We would love to meet you at one of these events very soon.

Visit Clare College with your students

We run school visits to the College throughout the academic year. 

Most of our visits are for students in Years 10, 11, and 12, though we are happy to host visits for students from Year 6 to Year 12 and value the opportunity to work with younger students as well as those approaching GCSEs or A Levels.

To learn more and arrange a visit to the College, please contact the Outreach team at schoolsliaison@clare.cam.ac.uk

Area Links Scheme

The University's Area Links Scheme enables the Cambridge Colleges to build effective, coherent relationships with schools and colleges across the UK. It gives schools and colleges a direct way of staying in touch with the University by providing specific contact points and allows the Cambridge Colleges to get to know specific regions and the local educational environments.

Clare College is linked with:

  • The London Borough of Tower Hamlets
  • The London Borough of Hackney
  • Coventry
  • Warwickshire

We are also linked with select Cambridgeshire schools as part of Connect2Cambridge. As such, most of our school visits are from schools and colleges in the above Link Areas. 

However, regardless of their link areas, all Cambridge Colleges will provide guidance and listen to your perspectives to make Cambridge as accessible as possible to all students with the ability and potential to study here. Many of our online programmes, webinars and taster sessions are open to students at state schools across the UK. Eligibility criteria for every programme is stated on the corresponding webpages.                                                     

Please note that admissions decisions at each College are made independently of the Area Links Scheme. There is no expectation that students apply to their link College and any connection to a particular school does not influence whether Colleges invite applicants for interview or offer them places.
