Trowbridge pupils gain confidence ahead of big school
3:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
Trowbridge primary school pupils have been enjoying a taste of secondary school life through a two-week taster course.
John of Gaunt School and Clarendon Academy have, over a two week period, offered 60 children a variety of activities and lessons to try.
The summer school has been co-ordinated by Trowbridge Collaborative Schools, funded by the Department for Education.
Jayne Bullock, co-ordinator of Collaborative Schools, said: “We have many different activities with our initial aim being to mirror the timetable of a secondary school and it has been a great success.”
Secondary school pupils were on hand to offer advice to ease any anxiety.
Andy Packer, John of Gaunt headteacher, said: “The summer school gives the children a great deal of confidence.”
