Summer School is Top Class at the University of Gloucestershire

Share this article

Getting a taste for University life is at the heart of this year’s residential summer school at the University of Gloucestershire, with 50 young people from 19 county schools.
The annual event sees Year 10 students, aged 14 and 15, enjoying a wide range of academic and social activities.
Starting on Monday July 19, and continuing until Friday July 23, the events are arranged by subject on each campus and beyond, and allow them to try their hand at something new and find out more about the facilities and courses the University has to offer.
Occupational therapy, allotments, creative photography, and forensic analysis are just some of the activities on offer during the day, before students make the most of their evenings with rock climbing, break dancing and bowling.
Caroline Beevor, Outreach Officer at the University of Gloucestershire, said: “The residential school has been going for a number of years now, and is a fantastic opportunity for us to show some of the benefits of higher education. It’s also a great way for the students to make new friends and enjoy new experiences.”
