In the last two weeks before the start of the Autumn Term, Isleworth & Syon ran a Summer School for forty selected students who began Year 7 in September. This scheme is a fantastic way for the students to get to know each other, and the school surroundings, before term begins. It is seen as a ‘soft’ induction to life at the school.
The first week was taken up with sports, as students engaged with a number of activities and practised their teamwork and leadership skills. During the second week, students rotated around subject activities within the school, taking in Drama, English, Food Technology and Science.
The two weeks culminated with a barbecue at Thistleworth Tennis Club, with parents/carers invited to celebrate their child’s success, and awards given out at the end. Many thanks to Mr Fisher for his organisation of the scheme, for the subject teachers who gave up their time, and, finally, to all the students for their hard work throughout.
