GMS Summer School 2022

For three full days in the week commencing Monday 15th August, Great Marlow School buzzed with the sound of more than 100 new Year 7 students in its Summer School. The full days allowed the new students to explore the school site and meet a number of teaching staff. All the students approached each day with enthusiasm, curiosity and resilience.

There were many different activities, which enabled students to experience a taste of what school is like. The activities saw the students inferring, investigating, creating, exploring and communicating.

In the food technology kitchens, they baked. In humanities, the students undertook to investigate the school site to find the perfect home for chickens. In PE they experienced playing basketball and rounders, both popular team games at GMS. A coordinates task, origami and problem solving was completed in maths. Science saw the students using Bunsen burners and mixing chemicals. Lastly, in art the students were encouraged to be creative with paints. It was a fun-packed three days and a huge thank you goes to all the staff who played their part in making it a success, including Sam in the canteen who provided snacks and lunches every day.

There is no doubt the new students gained so much from GMS’s Summer School. It has introduced them to some staff, the site and some lessons. Roll on Monday 5th September, when the next school year begins properly.

We thank Mrs Messenger, Year 7 Director of Learning for leading on this event and making it so successful for all concerned.
