Summer School 2021 was a Sizzling Success
Updated: Nov 25, 2021
The purpose of Leventhorpe’s first ever Summer School was to provide catch up lessons as a result of lost learning during the pandemic. It was also an opportunity to introduce our upcoming year 7s into life at Leventhorpe (including learning how to navigate their way around our constantly expanding site!) Some lucky year 9 students also had the opportunity to take part in a range of team building activities.
Year 7s enjoyed a delicious taster menu of activities including: developing and marketing their own chocolate bars, designing and presenting their own theme parks, making models for use in animation, creating and playing (very noisily at times) a range of Brazilian beats, experimenting with Adobe Photoshop, completing special science projects, and making wonderful creations in technology. The real success story however, in terms of maximum amounts of fun, was the Friday outdoor sports day and inflatable obstacle courses and games - the sound of laughter and victory raised the sports hall roof!
Great fun was had by teachers, support staff, volunteers and students. Our first Leventhorpe Summer School was, without a doubt, a sizzling success!
