Summer School 2021

Students that attended Summer School had an absolutely AMAZING week! These photos help to sum it up and in accordance with the conditions of the funding, we have provided below brief details of our summer camp. Our summer camp ran for 5 days between 26/07/21 to 30/07/21. We used an external provider to work with us to organise the logistics and deliver the camp. The external providers fees per student was £298.50 per week. 
Within this they provided: 
i. Teachers to conduct Maths and English lessons - our staff really enjoyed these lessons as they got to know students.
ii. Structured programme of study - students loved the booklets for Maths and English and the Food Tech sessions were a definite favourite!
iii. Stationary, workbooks, drawstring bag, scientific calculator and reusable water bottles - our students loved these packs 🙂
iv. Food Tech and ice breaker activities  - as mentioned....these were awesome! 
v. Fitness activities - student enjoyed sessions in the sports hall as well as outside.
vi. Marketing – Inform and register students for the Summer School programme. 
vii. PC Tablets - a definite hit!
viii. Assessments - not so much of a hit but very worthwhile!
ix. One Day Trip - the highlight of the week!
