      Cheryl Ellams, 27/04/2016

      This year’s summer school for Gifted and Talented year 6 pupils is scheduled to run for 2 weeks in the summer holidays:

      Week 1  --> 8th – 12th August

      Week 2  -->15th – 19th August

      The summer school program is an opportunity for Gifted and Talented year 6 pupils to experience different workshops (STEM subjects) and a university trip, which are all aimed to stretch and challenge them. 

      If you would like to be a part of this year’s summer school, especially if you are considering a career in teaching or working with young people, this would be an ideal opportunity to gain valuable work experience. 

      We are looking to recruit student mentors for the fortnight to help support pupils to get the most out of this experience. The workshops are designed to be fun and engaging and help the pupils with the transition from primary to secondary school.
