Summer Camp

Our Academy continues to offer face to face summer camps to support our students in their development. In the summer of 2021 we successfully delivered two weeks of summer school, aiding academic recovery and offering fantastic wellbeing support. The summer camps involved a mix of academic and enrichment activities. Students enjoyed a vast array of experiences on offer, some provided on site and others as part of trips to local providers. Additional subject support was provided with science workshops, small group music tuition, journal writing as well as a historical visit to Beamish, helping students improve their knowledge base whilst having fun. All participants were taken to an outdoor activities centre to develop their confidence and help build teamwork skills. This supports the academy’s drive to develop a strong character curriculum. Character was further developed by students being active citizens in a clean up event alongside local community police officers and members of the local community. In addition, students were encouraged to challenge themselves to try something new, aiding their personal growth. For example, sports based activities were delivered with students able to try their hand at water sports at Roker, have a go at rock climbing or archery, or even boost their mental wellbeing with yoga. Students’ passions and talents were always encouraged and strong relationships with the Academy staff formed. Many attendees were incoming students from our Year 6 primary schools and feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The culmination of our summer camps was a large celebration event for all the students who took part, recognising, along with their parents and carers, all they had achieved.

The amount of summer school funding received was £50,671.40.
