Summer School 2021 26th July – 6th August
Greenbank High School delivered a two-week Summer School in 2021, offering a week’s place to all pupils making the transition into Year 7 in September. In addition, a targeted group of pupils moving into year 8 were also invited. Some pupils in Year 6 were invited to attend for an additional week.
Pupils experienced a blend of activities giving them a rounded Greenbank experience. They had the opportunity to take part in activities such as English, maths, PE, Design and technology, Food and Nutrition and daily reading.
The summer school was delivered by Greenbank High School staff, who specialised in a range of subjects such as English, Maths, PE and Design Technology.
The students also took part in a range of outdoor and adventurous activities, including a day trip out to Crosby Leisure Activity Centre where pupils took part in kayaking, sailing, archery and team building activities.
The summer school successfully promoted positive mental health, self-confidence, resilience, self-esteem, wellbeing and importantly academic achievement in English and maths.
The pupils were delighted to take part in the summer school as they made new friends and took part in a wide range of different activities, which were very welcome after a year of class bubbles and home learning.
