The Sevenoaks School Summer Programme is an academic enrichment course comprising of 4 key modules - Critical Thinking, Social Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Digital & Study Skills. Each module is a ten-hour course and the variety on offer gives students a taste of what academic life is like at Sevenoaks School.

Sevenoaks School prides itself not only on being a centre for academic excellence, but also for its rich and varied educational atmosphere. Their aim is that students should become well-rounded individuals, and the key to this is participation in co-curricular activities. There are a large number of interesting, useful and challenging activities happening in the afternoons and evenings as part of the Sevenoaks School Summer Programme. All activities are planned and delivered by trained staff and coaches. Students choose one activity per week and they take part in a total of 12 hours of activities during the two-week session.

After a busy day of lessons and co-curricular pursuits, the evenings are a chance for students to get to know one another in more informal circumstances. Their team of dynamic and enthusiastic Activity Leaders organise a variety of evening activities, ranging from yoga to karaoke, futsal to a late-night shopping trip to Bluewater. The course ends with the eagerly anticipated Leavers' Ball.

With such an enviable location, they make the most of being close to London by going on three excursions in each session to places in and around the capital city. The excursions are a chance for students to take in some of the UK’s top attractions while continuing to bond with their friends. Each excursion includes a meal at a restaurant, enabling students to sample some new food, with a wide range of choices available.

For further information contact us at summerschool@wrighteducation.org. Places are limited and students will be required to pass an English proficiency test before being accepted on to the course.
