A Day at a Sutton Trust Summer School
At a Durham University Sutton Trust Summer School no two days are the same!
We pack each day full of useful academic classes, informative guidance sessions and exciting social activities led by leading academics, admissions experts and current university students, your ‘student mentors’. Throughout the residential you usually have an opportunity to try numerous social activities, from dodge ball, mug painting, cupcake decorating and debating. We also have a celebration evening at the end of the week which is a great opportunity to celebrate successfully completing the Sutton Trust Summer School.
A rough outline of a day at the 2016 Summer School was as follows:
|8am||Breakfast and gather for academic sessions|
|9am -12 noon||Academic Sessions in departments|
|12 noon- 1pm||Lunch in academic groups|
|1pm-5pm||Academic sessions in departments|
|5pm – 6pm||Return to college/chill out time|
|6pm-7pm||Dinner in Mentor groups|
|7pm – 8.30pm||Social Activities in College|
|8.30pm -10pm||College Challenge (whole Summer School Group Event)|
|10pm – 11pm||Mentor Group time and then free time before curfew at 11pm|
