Summer School

Thank you to all the parents/carers for registering your interest in Crookhorn College’s Summer School from Monday 23rd August – Friday 27th August 2021. This week will allow new students to meet each other, take part in numeracy and literacy interventions and enjoy a range of other activities, including catering, computing and PE. Students will also get a chance to meet some of the Crookhorn staff team and be able to explore and familiarise themselves with the College site before September.

Each day will begin at 9am and finish at 3pm. Parents/carers can drop students off outside Reception from 8.50am each morning and students can be collected from outside Reception from 3pm each day. On Monday, all students will be meeting in the Main Hall where they will meet the staff and be organised into their groups for the week. The Main Hall is easy to find from Reception and there will be staff around to help students find their way.
