Our long running Key Stage 2 summer school is a great introduction to the marine environment.

In this week-long summer school, pupils will investigate the animals and plants that inhabit our oceans. They will be able to explore marine life at first-hand on local rocky shores, in the University's aquarium and by using microscopes.

Opportunities for art, fun, games and making new friends.

Each pupil will have the opportunity to carry out their own mini research project.
