Summer School has been a great opportunity for students to bond and form friendships. We provide a variety of meaningful activities for students to engage with, proven to be a really positive foundation for the start of their academic journey with us.

Cashan CampbellAssistant Vice Principal, Y7 Transition & English teacher

Summer School is a great opportunity for students to interact with others that are taking the same big step as they move to secondary school.

Donavan ShandYear 7 Achievement Coordinator

Fairfield Summer School is a brilliant opportunity for our incoming Year 7 students to get to know Fairfield: the site, the staff, our ethos and – best of all – their new classmates! Students participate in workshops, games and activities designed to prepare them for success at secondary school. The end of day smiles are proof it’s a win-win option for a smoother transition.

Jackie Kramer-Arden, Transition and Summer School Coordinator

My daughter has really enjoyed her time with you, made lots of new friends and really enjoyed the activities that you’ve planned. Many thanks for organising what I think will have provided her with much confidence before officially starting in September.

Parent/Carer

I met loads of people and friends! It was so fun and I’m really glad I went! I am really excited about going to Fairfield in September. The food was amazing too!

Student

I liked how there was lots of exercise available and you got to know the school and some Year 7s a bit better and the amount of different activities you could do. I also enjoyed having the performance at the end of the week.

Student

Can I just say that the summer school has been fantastic – thank you to you and your staff for arranging it.

Parent/Carer

All the dancing. All the boxing. All the art. I also liked the food, it was spot on!! I also made some friends.
