Transition from school to university is a very large step for some students. This account describes how the Chemistry Department at Bristol University arranges engagement activities (workshops, practicals, lectures, tours, etc.) for school groups and their teachers. The intention is to show the students what chemistry at a university is like and enable them to work alongside undergraduate and postgraduate role models. The practical arrangements for these links are explained as well as what can be expected of both parties. Many of the ideas and activities described could be applicable to most university science departments and the schools in their surrounding areas.
