The Summer School Scheme
The Summer School Scheme is held every year for three days in July at the start of the school summer holidays. All new Year 8 pupils are invited to attend and take part in a varied programme of activities that is designed to introduce them to Thornhill College and to help them settle into their new school.
A wide variety of fun activities, delivered and supervised by teachers, support staff and senior pupils is arranged each year. These include:
- Art and animation
- A range of sports and games
- An introduction to the Science laboratories
The Summer School Scheme has proved to be a huge success. Pupils enjoy the many activities available. They make new friends and feel more confident about the move to their new school in September.
Lunch is provided each day and on the final day a special barbecue and presentation ceremony takes place, to which all parents are invited.
