School Camps - Summer Schools

TeamCamp has been running Summer Schools for Schools since 2012. Now, in 2016, we are launching our new peer-2-peer summer schools service.

A peer-2-peer summer school is one run by students for students. It offers both the ideal transition for vulnerable Y7s, and a powerful development opportunity for high-potential Y10s.

It also provides the ideal launch-pad for a year-long mentoring programme, such as that provided by Franklin Scholars. Together, these services create a value-for-money intervention with massive and enduring impact.

TeamCamp staff run the summer school, plus train and manage volunteers. TeamCamp’s high impact programme fills in academic gaps while building pupil confidence and growth mind-set. Meanwhile, an ongoing mentoring programme enables gains to be bedded in and built upon.

5 Pillars of the Summer Schools Service

TeamCamp will structure, staff, and run the summer school at your school in partnership with you. Maths, English, and Science comprise a third of our standard programme. The rest includes sports, drama, art and fun team building activities. See the 5 pillars of the service, below.
