About the Programme

Our goal is to help schools inspire the scientists, artists and teachers of tomorrow as well as provide teachers with the hook that will spark their pupils’ curiosity. We want to give pupils the confidence to explore new subjects and discuss their ideas. We offer in-school modules and campus visits led by our friendly Warwick students.

COVID-19 UPDATE All of our on-campus and in-school visits are suspended until further notice.

Check what we are offering for 2020/2021 below.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Key Facts

The key information is contained within this menu. Open each section to find out more.

We are always happy to work with schools and places will be allocated according to our Widening Participation indicators with priority given to schools which meet the following benchmarks:
    •Schools with KS2 average point score in Reading, writing and maths below 64%
      •Schools with a percentage of pupils at state-funded nursery and primary schools known to be eligible for and claiming free school meals higher than 15.8%
        •Schools in area of high deprivation (we look at IMD Quintile 1 and 2 and Polar 4)
        In 2021/22, we will be offering instead of our Bright Stars Modules the possibility for you to welcome Warwick students in your school for a half-day activity with some of our Topics in a Box and for the Warwick Sustainability Tour Competition. Please see the relevant sections below.
        At present, with Covid safety measures in place, our building spaces are restricted to teaching our students and we are unable to organise events on campus for the wider public. We are looking at the possibility of hosting events on campus at the weekends and out of term times in Summer 2022 so keep a close eye on our newsletter! Throughout 2021 and 2022, the University is organising the Resonate Festival in partnership with Coventry City of Culture and is hoping to have a on-campus event in April 2022. The Warwick Bright Stars programme is in the process of securing a stand at the event where we would like to invite schools who have taken part in some of our online activities such as the Warwick Sustainability Tour (see below).
