Year 12 Specialist Summer School runs from 6 July 2020-10 July 2020 and aimed to encourage those students who can benefit most from what we have to offer, whatever their background, to explore a range of creative subject areas:

  • Acting
  • Costume
  • Design
  • Drawing
  • Fine Art
  • VFX

WHAT?

This free, five-day, non-residential activity for students in Year 12 (ages 16/17) is designed to give students a taster of studying a chosen subject at further or higher education level. These sessions will allow you to develop specialist learning, team building, problem-solving and communication skills.

When?

This activity took place on 6 July 2020-10 July 2020. Please note that you will need to commit for the whole three-day duration enabling sufficient time to complete your project.

Year 12 Summer School took place on our campus located at Wallisdown on the border between Bournemouth and Poole. The campus offers a series of modern, purpose built studios, workrooms and teaching areas.
