Summer school activities break down

The 2021 Treasure Island summer school was a real success! The year 6 students who attended had a fantastic time. Taking part in a range of activities from a cooking class, to sports sessions on a giant inflatable course! The activities were planned to build students confidence, team building and communication skills, as well as taking part in new subjects and activities. The summer school allowed students to meet key members of staff and other students to build friendships and reduce anxieties. All the students who attended the summer school said they felt more confident to start school in the September and that they had made new friends!

Overall the students thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities and said they would definitely recommend it to future students.
