Bronte Summer School

Bronte Summer School

We are delighted to announce the first year of the Bronte Summer School, which is going to offer Bronte children and their friends at Amelia Appleby Performing Arts School a series of fun and fulfilling week-long courses. These will all be planned, organised and staffed by qualified professionals to provide a high-quality experience for your children.  As you can see from the outlines below, the courses are varied and open to different year groups.

During each week there will be a BBQ social lunch on the Friday which will be provided (along with all materials) as part of the overall cost of the course.  Participants will be required to bring a packed lunch on Monday-Thursday.

There is also an option for your child to ‘bring a friend’, as long as they fall within the age restrictions for each course.

Each individual course will run from 10am – 4pm and you can opt for one course in one week, or choose to attend both weeks and try two different courses if you wish.

Summer School, Week 1 (Monday 28th July – Friday 1st August 2014)

Tennis Academy                                                                      Year 1 – Year 6 (£175 p.w.)

The week is suitable for the complete novice as well as those at a more advanced level as a qualified tennis coach will guide you through the many skills and techniques required to be the ‘pro’ you want to be!  There will be various challenges and tournaments throughout the week.

Amelia Appleby’s Performing Arts Week 1                         Reception – Year 6 (£150 p.w.)

Learn different skills to do with the world of performing!  Each week will be tailored and grouped to take account of the ages and experience of participants, but is likely to include, drama, musical theatre, stage-craft, acting for TV, face-painting and stage make-up, street-jazz, stage-fighting and much more!

Apple Summer Camp                                                                 Year 3 – Year 6 (£175p.w.)

Spend mornings at the Apple Store, Bluewater, learning new skills and focussing on a programme (iPhoto, iMovie or GarageBand) – then spend the afternoons in the ICT suite at Bronte School preparing for the next day and researching further.  The week will end with a presentation to parents at the Apple Store (TBC – but possibly on the Saturday morning).

Summer School, Week 2 (Monday 4th August – Friday 8th August 2014)

The Great Bronte Bake-Off and Sewing Bee                           Year 2 – Year 6 (£175 p.w.)

Have you watched TV and wondered how those celebrities pull off such amazing dishes?  Wouldn’t you like to cook whilst wearing an apron you designed and made yourself?  You have an opportunity to spend the week learning some of the many secrets of the trade!!  Each day you will cook something new and exciting as well as make some home-crafted sewn items – all of which are yours to keep as a memento of your week.

Amelia Appleby’s Performing Arts Week 2                         Reception – Year 6 (£150 p.w.)

Learn different skills to do with the world of performing!  Each week will be tailored and grouped to take account of the ages and experience of participants, but is likely to include, drama, musical theatre, stage-craft, acting for TV, face-painting and stage make-up, street-jazz, stage-fighting and much more!

Each week has a limited number of spaces, so reply quickly if you would like your child to attend!  Please contact Bronte School directly (quoting Amelia Appleby) and speak to either Mr Spain or Miss Spain (01474 533805).  Your details will be taken and a registration form and invoice will then be sent directly to you.  Your child’s place on the course is secured once the invoice is paid in full.

 

We do take childcare vouchers issued by employers AND childcare is available on-site from 8:30 – 10:00am (£5 per morning) and after each course finishes at the end of the day 4:00 – 5:30pm (£5 per evening) which should be useful for working parents.

I look forward to seeing many of you during Bronte Summer School where we will, as always, put the Bronte school motto into practice ‘Labor Ipse Voluptus’ – learning should be fun!

Best wishes,

Mrs E Wood
