Canterbury Christ Church University is holding their annual Summer Schools which are taking place in July and applications for these open on Monday 26th February. 

The first residential event will take place between Sunday 8th and Thursday 12th July 2018 at our Canterbury campus and is for year 10 boys only and they have 50 places available. The link attached will be open from 8am Monday. https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/outreach/forms/boys-8-12-summer-school-2018.aspx 

The second event will take place between Sunday 22nd and Thursday 26th July 2018 again at our Canterbury campus. This is a mixed summer school for year 10 students and we have 50 places available. The link attached will be open from 8am Monday. https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/outreach/forms/mixed-summer-school-2018.aspx

 

Those attending will stay in their newest accommodation at Petros Court, take part in a variety of activities both academic and socially and live like a student for the time they are with them. They will be fully supported by a large team of staff who will stay in the university accommodation also. All meals, drinks, activities and costs will be met by the university, but students will need to bring a small amount of spending money. Travel to and from the university is not provided, however, if this will be an issue they would not want it to be a reason for non-attendance so they can discuss alternative options for transport separately.

If your son or daughter is elibible for a place at the Summer school you will have been sent a letter with the details included in it.

If you have any questions, please email gipsonj@hartsdown.org.
