The Norfolk Summer School has been featured in a new report, The Missing 2000, on how independent and state schools work together to help the most disadvantaged students achieve their aspirations.
The Summer School offers advice and support to sixth form students from across the county who are aiming for some of the UK’s most competitive university places. Held at Norwich School over the holidays, the programme offers unique opportunities to students, enabling them to make informed decisions about their applications to Oxbridge and the country’s other top universities.
At a time when the coronavirus crisis has challenged schools as never before and Year 12 students have lost valuable learning time as they consider applications to top universities for 2021, the need for cross-sector partnership and collaboration seems more relevant than ever.
"The Summer School scheme has now become part of the local calendar and we work closely with Norfolk County Council to promote the summer school, which has become a really important asset for the county. it has helped 1,600 pupils from Norfolk since its inception 18 years ago." said Mr Croston who is Head of UCAS and Careers.
The full report, called The Missing 2000, was put together as part of the Schools Together initiative run by the ISC can be read here: https://www.isc.co.uk/media/6756/the-missing-two-thousand-final.pdf
