Coombes Boys School

Year 6 Summer School

We are very much looking forward to your son starting with us at Coombe Boys’ School in September. As part of your son’s induction process, we would like to invite him to join us for a summer school experience.

Performing Arts Summer School

Monday 13th August to Friday 17th August 2018 10am -2pm (5 days)

Your son will have the opportunity to take part in creating and staging a completely original show in just five days with a team of Performing Arts practitioners from Coombe Boys’ School who are specialists in drama, dance and music. Pupils will create a unique piece of devised theatre exploring the title ‘THEME’ and will perform their show on the Friday to an invited audience. The cost of the Performing Arts summer school is £70. 

Darkmouth Summer School

Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd August 2018 10am-2pm (3 days)

When you son attends his Induction Day on 4th July all Year 7’s are given a book to read over the summer break. This will assist with their transition as all staff and Year 7 students will read the book.  This enables staff and students to have conversations about the book and help to develop friendships. We work with Kingston University on this scheme and feel that it helps reduce worries about starting secondary school as all students have a common conversation topic. This year we have chosen the book Darkmouth by Shane Hegarty. During the three day summer school, we will be using the book to plan activities. The cost of summer school is £55 for the three days.

Please see a copy of the letter with further information is below along with a reply slip and Medical Information Form.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school via our e-mail at .  We look forward to meeting your son at summer school and trust he will have an enjoyable time with us.
