The Summer School Programme provides students with one week of activities and workshops. The sessions run from Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm. The total cost is £100 per student. Payment plans can be arranged through our Student Services team.

Letters will be sent to the senior leaders of all our local primary schools with an invitation for the school to invite selected students to apply for a place on the programme. We encourage schools to select pupils who will benefit most from the experience in terms of developing skills, meeting new people, trying out new experiences and supporting their transition to secondary school. Students can also be selected because of their high academic performance, their enthusiasm for learning, or their dedication during their time at primary school.
