The Key Project

The Key Project is an educational collaboration between the School, the educational charity The Access Project, and leading international law firm Slaughter and May.

The Key Project works with students from in Years 10 to 13, providing them with one to one weekly tuition in a subject of their choice, from professionals in businesses located in the nearby area. The aim of project is to provide support, both tuition and mentoring, to students from less privileged backgrounds.

Along with tutoring, Key Project students receive personalised support in preparing for and applying to the most selective universities. Support includes workshops on choosing A-levels and university courses, subject-specific sessions with successful graduates in a variety of professions, one to one personal statement and university interview support, and work experience opportunities.

The Key Project is a highly ambitious programme which supports the School’s mission to ensure that all Central Foundation students, regardless of their background, are able to fulfil their potential and gain the best education possible.

A child on Free School Meals is 22 times less likely than a privately educated pupil to enter a highly selective university. The School’s aim, in partnership with The Key Project, is to change these statistics.

The project is led by project coordinator, Mr Breed, who is based at the school. If you have any questions about The Key Project, please email
