Monday 31st July saw the start of Bower Park’s week long Summer School for the new Year 7 students. Over 50 children have been attending and taking part in lots of fun activities such as dance, drama, science, sports, camping skills, numeracy and literacy. I visited on Thursday 3rd August and everyone was having great fun and told me how much they were enjoying the experience. Some students arrived no knowing anybody, but it is clear that they have now made new friends. In fact, many students have made new friendships that will, hopefully, be long lasting. Summer School has provided students with a great introduction to life at Bower Park Academy. Many thanks to Mrs Porter for organising the week and to all the staff who have given up a week of their summer holidays to make the week so special for our students.
