Highdown School

Our summer booster camps and Saturday tuition centre at Highdown School are a great way to boost achievement, improve results and realise potential. Our aim is to maintain momentum through the summer holidays and prevent the learning slide.

Prices from just £25/day

Our secondary booster camps are ideal for students in years 4 - 10 to brush up on existing material, learn new skills and topics and prepare for the academic year ahead. Our camps are led by qualified teachers and are specifically designed to consider individual needs and help students gain a better understanding of subject matter. Its a highly stimulating environment that is proven to deliver results.

How is the camp structured?

The sessions are delivered by qualified teachers from Winchmore Camps and students are split by Key stage and ability level. Our 3 day single subject camps include two assessments so we are able to measure progress. Progress data is available after the camp.
