Why Summer School?
With all the disruption to education from the pandemic, Summer School offers students the perfect opportunity for expert tuition to boost their confidence ahead of the new Academic Year. Our balanced programme of learning and fun activities will allow students to catch up with their studies and enjoy the chance to socialise with each other.
Designed for current Years 10, 11 and 12 students, our Summer School courses are an excellent mix of learning and fun. With a wide range of subjects, course dates and centres, students can choose where and when they want to study.
Attending on a residential basis allows students to make friends and get the most out of the experience, enhancing their ability to learn. Online Summer School allows students to benefit from the expert support of our tutors from any location.
All our Summer School courses have:
- Five days of expert tuition, led by experienced yet friendly tutors
- Teaching tailored to individual students needs
- Small class sizes (maximum 8) to facilitate learning and camaraderie
- A varied daily activity programme, suitable for all students
- Some free time to relax with new friends and enjoy the centre’s facilities
- On site pastoral care
Top reasons why students want to join Summer School:
- Opportunity to catch up as not feeling “on track” with studies
- Wishing to achieve high grades requirements for sixth form or university
- Feeling anxious about the next school year and exams
- Lacking in confidence or motivation
- Disappointing end of year exam results
- Getting ahead by filling any knowledge gaps
- Giving a firm foundation for the next academic year
Our 5 day summer courses, located at one of our residential centres, provide a relaxed yet stimulating learning environment.
One day each of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and either English Language or Literature.
Five days focused on the student’s chosen subject, building knowledge, skills and exam technique.
In addition to academic tuition, Summer School includes an Activity Programme. This has been designed so that there is something for everyone, it runs every day after classes in late afternoon and early evening.
Activities vary from centre to centre but may include fun activities such as a BBQ, campfire, film night, team games or a theatre trip. We also offer students help and advice on other relevant topics such as student well-being or UCAS.
Outside the organised activities, all centres have outdoor space for students to enjoy, either for a game of football or just to relax with friends.
