Dear Parents,

As we move on towards the summer break, we would like to share with you some information about projects, activities and summer schools that are starting to trickle into school. 

We will continue to share things that we think you will find interesting as they come in and wil post things on the Parent Section of the website - here. Two really great offers are outlined below.

If your child is interested then please email the contact mentioned.

The summer holidays are almost here and with parents looking for amazing educational activities to help keep the children stimulated and busy, we’re excited to let you know that registration for our annual free summer STEM programme - Outbox 2021 - is now open:

Who are Stemettes?

Outbox 2021

This August, Stemettes will be virtually bringing together women and nonbinary people with an interest in STEM to meet/play/learn and most of all have fun! Across four weeks of daily sessions, group work and downtime, they will work on STEM projects or if they're over 16, professional certifications in Python & Cyber.
The programme will take place 3rd - 27th August, Tuesdays through to Fridays. There will be three age streams: Junior (7-11), Connect (12-15) and Academy (16-21). We will start considering applications from Friday 9th July.
