Whilst most year 6 students were enjoying their last summer before moving to secondary school, a small group of 35 were taking part in Shoot!, a summer school designed to help with the transition from Primary to Secondary School.
Now in its 4th year, Shoot! is planned and run by ALNS staff to help students’ find their feet at ALNS before term starts in September.
With sessions in Maths, English, Science and Languages, students experience a taste of what it will be like in lessons and get the chance to meet some of their teachers. Trips out to Action Stations, Paultons Park and the Outdoor Centre give students the opportunity to build friendships that will see them through school.
Students and parents have both said that Shoot! was such a positive experience and has benefitted the way that they look at the move to secondary school.
