Saturday School at Latymer was launched in 1995 and has gone from strength to strength.
This project runs throughout the Spring Term, every Saturday between 9.30am and 12pm, and offers an opportunity for up to 150 pupils in Year 6 from local primary schools to experience both familiar and new subjects in a senior school setting. Saturday School is entirely free to participants and is kindly sponsored by Adam Toop (1984).
Taught by Latymer Upper School staff, supported by Sixth Form and Year 10 volunteers, lessons are fun, lively, innovative and creative. Participating children are selected by their headteachers as those who might benefit most from attending the course. The reasons are varied and children of all abilities are very welcome.
Saturday School aims to bridge the gap between primary and secondary school and raise the children’s confidence about this transition. The learning environment is relaxed and sociable, where pupils from local schools meet each other and develop their social skills. The aim is also to widen and deepen pupils’ knowledge and thirst for learning whilst complementing their education at primary school.
