Future Quest is focused on one thing: providing the skills essential to helping 13-18 year olds across Bristol into Higher Education (HE).
Whether that’s into university, college (HE in Further Education) or apprenticeships, our programmes are designed to support and inspire young people to make HE work for them.
We’ve designed a range of programmes to help young people grow their skills and get into HE.Find out more

Future Quest is working with the UWE Library Service to offer school and college students a visit to one of the UWE libraries on either the Frenchay, Glenside or City campus (Bower Ashton Studios site) to learn about different research skills and to use the resources to help students with their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). There is also the opportunity to include a campus tour and/or a Q&A session with UWE Bristol students.
Future Quest students and parents/carers now have free access to Blackbullion. This is a website that has a bunch of useful resources and tools to help you wrap your head around the financial side of university.
Staying local to Bristol can be a great and cost effective way to access Higher Education. The Future Quest website includes lots of stories from students and graduates who stayed in Bristol during their studies. Many lived at home and commuted to university or college and enjoyed the benefits of a brilliant education and being close to family and friends.
Bristol Museums, in collaboration with Bristol Grammar School are organising an evening Philosothon at the M-Shed in March. Students from different schools will be collaborating in small mixed school groups to explore philosophical and ethical questions while interacting with the exhibits.
