Summer School



Perse Summer School 2015
Monday 20 – Friday 24 July and Monday 27 – Friday 31 July

It is with great pleasure that I introduce the brochure for the 2015 Perse Summer School. This year sees us offer more than 40 different
courses over the two weeks of Summer School. Courses are for children aged between 8 and 17, covering a variety of different disciplines with, we hope, something to appeal to everyone.

I am also delighted to be able to open the opportunity to attend the Perse Summer School to pupils from any school, so do please feel free to pass the details on to friends and family if you think they might be interested.

The majority of courses have a single focus, and it is the intention that these are genuine learning experiences, where children should feel a sense of progress over the duration of the course. To that end, all courses are delivered by ‘subject specialists’. 2015 will be the first year that we offer specialist courses in this way and we hope in future years
to build Summer School by extending the number of weeks for which we run, and by widening the variety of available courses.

We have endeavoured to build in as much flexibility as we can, with a selection of morning, afternoon and full day courses – most bookable by the week but a few are bookable by the day.

Please send completed forms to as an attachment or post the completed form to The Perse School (Summer School Courses), Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 8QF.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch
