Summer School

Cheam High School Transition Summer School 2023

Due to the huge success of Summer School 2021 and Summer School 2022 Cheam High School were delighted to run the event again during summer 2023! 

Transition Summer School is for Year 6 students starting Cheam High School in the September of that academic year.

The feedback that we have received from previous years has been extremely positive. Our students’ feedback has highlighted just how much they enjoyed making new friends, loved new experiences, and felt comfortable exploring the school site without any other year groups present. 

Parent/Carer feedback was also extremely positive, not only because it was free, but because their children were enjoying themselves and talking about their new school. 

During the first four days of the summer holidays we had over 230 students attend our exciting programme, which included a range of different experiences, trips, getting to know the school environment and making new friends. 

Students went to Walton Furs for an adventure day taking part in archery, tomahawk throwing, crate stacking and an obstacle course and also visited Hever castle, where they toured the grounds and played in the maze. 

It was fantastic to see new friendships evolving, students finding their way around the school site, exciting taster lessons in action and relationships building between students and staff. We were again, highly impressed with the students that attended the summer school in terms of behaviour, manners and kindness towards each other. 

Student voice has been extremely positive about the programme and therefore we will be running the Summer School again on Thursday 25th July 2024 and Friday 26th July 2024 for those students that will be joining us in September 2024. 

Please Note: It is only possible to run two days of Summer School 2024 due to the range of term dates across the borough.
