Summer Projects

Every year we work with our partner schools to deliver summer projects for young people, particularly those who will then be able to take part in a term-time project. We have run Summer Projects for over 20 years, and helped thousands of children to become more engaged with education and improve their life chances. We deliver professional and effective projects to provide academic support and character education.

The ‘Heroes Academy’ uses a play-based curriculum to

  • Increase confidence of young people
  • Refresh and boost Literacy and Numeracy skills in preparation for September
  • Raise awareness of the role of character in personal development and academic attainment

We use the theme of superheroes to help young people discover what it takes to become an everyday hero. Young people are encouraged to develop four ‘superpowers’: Self Control, Resilience, Good Judgement and Fairness.
