This summer, over 150 incoming and existing pupils at Lambeth Academy have benefited from a fully funded Summer Camp, where they enjoyed a variety of educational and teambuilding activities.
Ahead of the new academic year, Year 6 pupils were invited to join the two-week camp which provided an excellent opportunity for them to settle into their new classrooms and meet some of their peers and teachers. Throughout the two weeks, pupils also took part in a variety of fun, team-building activities and likewise enjoyed some taster lessons including in Art, Science and PE.
At the same time, catch-up support was made available for pupils in Years 7 and 8 to ensure they could follow up on any content they had missed as a result of disruption caused by the pandemic. Showcasing a strong commitment to their learning, over 50 Key Stage 3 pupils took part in these additional classes, focusing primarily on English, Maths and Science.
At the end of the camp, all pupils joined together for a special celebration where they were congratulated for their hard work with a BBQ and a movie.
Amy Welch, Principal of Lambeth Academy said:
“I am delighted that we were able to welcome so many of our new pupils to the academy as part of this year’s Summer Camp. It was fantastic to see everyone so engaged in their taster lessons and throw themselves wholeheartedly into the range of activities on offer.
“As well as making sure our incoming pupils feel confident about taking their first steps into secondary school, the camp was very important in ensuring our existing pupils have everything they need to hit the ground running in September. Well done to all our pupils who took part in the catch-up support lessons on offer – they continue to inspire us all with the commitment they show to their learning.”
