As part of our transition programme, we run a 2 week summer school in August. Team Camp deliver the summer school through their experienced academic pastoral staff alongside volunteers and HNS teaching staff. The programme for year 6 students about to join us in September discovers and showcases individual talents, building confidence and self-esteem. The students develop their physical, creative and problem solving skills whilst getting to know their peers and school staff. English, maths and science booster classes give them a head start to secondary school. We introduce the HNS academic and behavioural expectations during the summer school in order to prepare our new year 7 students for the demands of secondary school.
“The summer school was a fun way to meet new students like me. We did some fun stuff and some work in science and on our Chromebooks!” – Year 6 student summer 2014
