Cambridge viewsSince 2005, our residential programs in Cambridge have truly been the highlight of every year. We were saddened not to be able to provide them for so many of our students in 2020 but we are more excited and motivated than ever as we look to our 2021 programs.  We look forward to delivering an unforgettable experience for our international network of students in 2021.

In light of Covid-19, we appreciate that you may have particular concerns and questions for summer 2021.  We understand that some things may have to be done slightly differently to previous years, and we are committed to adapting accordingly whilst still ensuring students can experience all of the life-changing highlights offered by a Reach program.

Rest assured, we are here to help and we wish to work with all our families and groups to keep the lines of communication open over the coming months. Please read our briefing below and do contact us if you have any further questions or concerns.

Please also note that we will be getting in touch with all families, including those who have transferred from 2020, in the spring. If you have any questions beforehand or would like to discuss your course or program choice, please email

Our Covid-19 Safety Plan

Participant welfare is paramount to the Provider. The ratio of staff to participant numbers is generous for example, in some lessons, two teachers are provided, or additional supervisors allocated, to ensure learning and safety are optimised.’ British Accreditation Council, Reach Cambridge inspection report, 2018

Since our first program 15 years ago, the health and safety of our students and staff has been, and always will be, our number one priority. We have consistently met and exceeded rigorous standards in Student Welfare and Safety as part of our accreditation from the British Accreditation Council (BAC). Furthermore, our welfare processes and contingency plans have been honed over the many years we have been running our programs, as we have dealt with incidents both large and small that have demanded robust and clear action plans.

Our preparations for 2021 are even more extensive: we have a dynamic management plan and risk assessment for Covid-19 that we are developing and updating as guidance changes, to ensure we are well prepared for 2021. This broadly divides into four detailed sections on prevention, detection, diagnosis and care.

We are in regular communication with Cambridge colleges (who have all welcomed back undergraduates this academic year) to review, adapt and discuss their existing guidelines for Covid-19. We also have our own protocols for the general running of the programs, taking into account guidelines from WHO (World Health Organisation), PHE (Public Health England) and the UK government. Our highly experienced leadership team will be analysing, reviewing and updating all guidelines and protocols in light of any changes ahead of next year’s programs.

Our mission has always been about bringing together bright and talented young people from around the world in a shared endeavour to prepare for their future – and that mission feels more important now than ever. We are confident that we will be able to offer a safe and supportive environment that still includes all of the joys of a truly international, engaging and life-changing Reach Cambridge program.
