Week Long Summer School Programme

Deliver an engaging Summer School whilst incorporating fun literacy and numeracy activities.

The Workshop

A 5 day literacy and numeracy programme.
Day 1 – Film Trailers – Planning, storyboarding and filming!
Day 2 – Comic Creations – Produce individual comic strips, focussing on creative writing.
Day 3 – Board Game Design – Design a board game on the school for prospective students.
Day 4 – Magazine – Creating a student magazine about the week.
Day 5 – Celebration Day – Parents invited for the première of the film trailers!

The Result

A clear positive impact on the students, with the cohort to have an identified higher attendance rate than their peers within first year. Transitional resources were used by the school and to also promote next years’ Summer School.

"Engaging Education have delivered our Summer School programme for the past 2 years. The children have an amazing time using specialist film and photgraphy materials whilst making new friends and becoming familier with the Academy. The final products have included board games, magazines, comic stips and movie trialers all finished to a very high, professional standard. As a result, we've seen our summer school cohort with a higher attendance than their peers. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Engaging Education."
