11 Milton Keynes secondary schools hosting 'summer school' this year, as part of government initiative

    Milton Keynes secondary schools will be hosting 'summer schools' to help children catch up.

    The Department for Education funded the initiative to help bridge the gap in education lost from the Covid pandemic.

    The secondary schools in Milton Keynes that are taking part include: Stephenson Academy, Radcliffe School, Shenley Brook End School, Stantonbury International, Denbigh School, St Paul's Catholic School, Walton High, The Hazeley Academy, Sir Herbert Leon Academy, Watling Academy and Lord Grey Academy.

    The schools will be hosting a range of activities and those that are making the move from primary school this September are invited too.

    Nick Gibbs, Schools Minister, said almost three quarters of eligible mainstream secondary schools nationally have agreed to host a summer school.

    “It is very good to see that so many children will now have the opportunity to enjoy clubs and activities, building friendships and supporting their mental and physical health, alongside their educational progress," he said.

    "We have invested £3 billion so far in helping children catch up ahead of the next academic year and summer schools are an integral part of the overall effort to recover from the disruption caused by the pandemic.”
