The sessions on offer included making bath bombs in science, a mini sports day, trying new sports such as cheerleading as well as baking cupcakes and sausage rolls in cookery classes.

Pupils were able to familiarise themselves with their new school environment whilst taking part in fun activities.

English teacher, Poppy Thompson, who oversaw the organisation of the summer school, said: “It was amazing to get to know so many of our new year seven’s throughout the week.

“The students and staff had a great time in the sessions and are really looking forward to the new year at Venture”
