Summer School

During the first two weeks of the summer holidays, Tabor Academy held a Summer School for a number of students.

We offered places to all of the students who would be joining us in Year 7 in September and had a fantastic response with students joining us for the first two weeks of the holidays.

Places were also offered to students in Year 10 with a similar response for places.

Every student who indicated that they wanted to join us in the Summer School were offered a place and there were often over 1300 students enjoying the activities and lessons on offer.

The Summer School was a great way to support the new Year 7 students and their parents in the transition process making their official start in September easier and less stressful.

Lessons and activities included English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, French and German.

The DfE Funding  of £40,718 covered our costs including the 24 wonderful staff who volunteered to help our students during the Summer School. It was also used to provide lunch for the students and support from our Year Care Team. It also supported our hardworking caretakers and cleaning staff as well as the costs of electricity and gas.
