Summer at the St. Mary’s Academy

This report focuses on the summer residential element of the academy which ran from from 24th July to 19th August with students in residence for that whole period in St Mary’s University halls of residence on the main Strawberry Hill campus (unless time out was previously arranged, for example to accommodate a pre-arranged family holiday). As this is a 4 year programme, the main objective for the first year was to get participants engaged and wanting to return, with the secondary aim of making year 10 easier to cope with, much of the core material being familiar when it comes up in the school year. The main objective was certainly hit and although the secondary objective will be best judged later in the school year, I feel optimistic about it, not least in the light of overwhelmingly positive feedback from foster carers, social workers and virtual school staff.
