How much will it cost? The Summer Programme is fully funded (including breakfast, lunch and all activities/tuition).  It is free of charge for all students attending on all five days.  There will be a charge of £40 if you sign up to the programme but your child does not attend on all five days, which we will collect through our online payment system, School Gateway, in the first half term.

I found it extremely motivating, it's been an amazing experience for me - one that I will cherish.
