5 reasons to join our GCSE summer camp in Bournemouth!
This summer we will be offering a brand new and exciting revision programme at our school in Bournemouth!
The programme offers an ideal way to fill in any knowledge gaps and work on exam technique, whilst at the same time having fun and engaging with the beautiful locations – forests, parks and beaches - on our doorstep.
Available for a minimum of 1-week, the course will enable students to:
1. Refresh subject knowledge and fill in any learning gaps
The course offers an excellent chance for students to catch up with teachers in person and ask any specific questions they may have relating to curriculum before the new term begins, so that they are ready to hit the ground running in September.
2. Bring the curriculum to life
The course combines revision in core subjects with a lively and engaging programme of team games and outdoor activities designed to bring the curriculum to life.
All activities are wrapped around, and interact with, our classroom-based teaching. Students will be up and out of their seats, engaging and interacting with the beautiful facilities and locations on our doorstep; the parks, forest and the beach.
3. Socialise with students from around the world and enjoy the Great Outdoors while learning
The programme will offer students an excellent chance to experience one of the UK’s most beautiful locations and enjoy being outdoors in the summer with friends and international classmates from around the world before returning to largely class-based learning.
Especially after the recent lockdowns and reduced access to friends and peers, and limited time outside, this will be a precious opportunity to make up for lost time and to make new friends.
4. Work on exam strategies, revision and study skills
In addition to revising and refreshing core subject knowledge, we will give students the tools to improve their study skills, to excel in exams and to prepare for further study. We will provide:
- expert input from subject teachers
- detailed feedback on areas to improve
- mock exam practice and analysis of past papers
- guidance towards better quality answers
- essay writing practice
- revision tips
- advice on further study and A level subject choice
- sessions on how to write a personal statement
5. Try new activities and enhance soft skills
There will be a range of interesting and exciting activities offered as part of the programme, many of which will also offer students the chance to hone their ‘soft’ skills, such as teamwork and leadership – great skills to be able to incorporate into sixth-form applications as well as everyday life.
Some of the activities offered will include beachcraft, bushcraft, team games, rounders, basketball, beach volleyball and half-day trips to local places of interest.
