How to book your place

Applications are now closed for the Post-16 Summer School 2023.

I really enjoyed the activities they planned for us. The inflatables, party night, movie night, team building, and the confidence workshop. Everything was really good. I gained a lot of confidence from this experience. I enjoyed it because it made me come out of my comfort zone.
