Wey Valley Academy Summer School 2021
Using the Government’s Summer school funding grant we were able to run a week-long Summer School that was provided free of charge (including lunches) to all students in our incoming Year 7 cohort.
210 students were invited and 180 attended with an average of 156 students attending each day of the week.
We offered a wide range of activities (see below) designed to provide support for academic development, physical development, artistic and musical development and student wellbeing. The majority of the activities were delivered by the Wey Valley Academy teachers supported by Teaching Assistants and support staff, along with external instructors for the specialist activities such as Paddle Boarding.
Every child was presented with a T-shirt as a memento of a great week. On the final day we awarded prizes and the students performed a magnificent medley of Abba songs!
The Summer school was a superb success and we hope to be able to repeat this again next year.
