Therapeutic Summer School Programme
Every summer holiday provides unique experiences for all children; 2020 epitomises these differing experiences and challenges.
Many children have missed months of classroom schooling, and in addition to the significant adjustments you have made to accommodate schools reopening in September, one of the biggest challenges is how you can reintegrate pupils from a home-school environment back into the classroom as seamlessly as possible.
Prospero’s Summer School programmes aim to deliver support to all families, helping children transition back into the classroom when schools reopen in September. Our tutoring sessions provide structure and routine for children, with a focus on successes. Objective oriented learning aims to unite a love of studying in children ready for a positive start to the new term.

All pupils will need support to transition back to school, however, transitioning year groups and pupils starting a new schools post pandemic are going to be the most affected. Prospero’s Virtual Summer School can support through 1-2-1 and small group tuition:
