    More than 100 youngsters got their first taste of life at Guilsborough Academy with a week-long summer school ahead of the start of the new term this September.

    Pupils from feeder schools who are starting at Guilsborough next month were invited in to take part in a series of fun sessions. The purpose of the summer school was to provide the opportunity to forge new friendships, learn to navigate the layout of their new school environment to provide reassurance and develop their confidence, prior to starting.

    They enjoyed sessions including Outdoor Yoga with Nicky Hayes Yoga as well as a Mindfulness program with trained Coaches from ‘Simply Being You’. Whilst ‘The Cobbler’s’ provided a range of activities including, ‘Fun Science’ led by Atomic Tom, Problem-solving ‘Code Breakers’ activities, Archery, Drama & Music Workshops, Circus Skills and a visit to the National Trampoline Centre to take part in a coaching session. The grand finale to the week was a presentation afternoon where students were presented with certificates & medals by guest Ross Tait – British Trampoline Champion from (17-21 yrs) and member of the England Squad. During the afternoon they also watched a video montage of the activities they had enjoyed and performed a whole group ‘School of Rock Flash mob’ on the field, with a dance they have learned from their ‘School of Rock’ dance workshop with Rutland Youth Dance Academy.

    Principal of Guilsborough Academy, Simon Frazer, said: “Every year we try to get our new intake to come in to experience taster days but that hasn’t been possible this year due to COVID. Rather than simply miss out on that opportunity, we decided to give them an even better experience and enjoy a whole week of activities to get a flavor of what life is like as part of the Guilsborough Academy family.”

    All those who took part were presented with a certificate by 21-year-old trampolinist Ross Tait, a member of the England squad and current British champion, who said: “…”

    The summer school was funded by the Government’s ‘Summer School’ grants and saw Year 13 ambassadors help run the sessions and show prospective pupils around the school.

    Louise Cook, who organised the sessions ahead of taking over as Headteacher of Naseby Primary School next month, said: “It has been a wonderful two weeks and both students and staff have had a fantastic time, enjoying all activities. It has been great to see new friendships starting, students’ confidence developing and lots of funny as well as proud moments! It has been such a success thanks to the support of an incredible staff team made up teachers, support staff & 6th Form Ambassadors.

    The students were able to experience an exciting transition week in a way that ensured it was fun for everyone.

    After a challenging and disrupted first year at Guilsborough, Year 7 students also enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a week of summer school.

    “After what has been a tough year for everyone it’s lovely to see the children with smiles on their faces looking forward to an exciting new chapter in their lives.”
