Working in small groups over several days means a real chance to get to know your tutors and fellow students. The material will be challenging (about the level of difficulty you might expect in your first year at university), but a relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of discussion, debate, and opportunity for students to shape the direction of classes creates the perfect environment for getting to grips with new ideas. Our Summer Schools are about much more than just lectures and seminars.

For example, the English Summer School includes poetry composition workshops, play readings and tickets to a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe. Sutton Trust Online Applications. Sutton Trust Summer Schools. Are you keen to explore your subject interests in depth?

Are you motivated by a challenge and do you like the idea of discussing your ideas with equally motivated students and teachers? If so, we’d love you to consider spending a week with us at Cambridge. The Cambridge Sutton Trust Summer Schools are week-long, subject-specific residentials, where you live and study as a Cambridge student. You’ll stay in your own private student room within a Cambridge College, eat with other Summer School students in the canteens and socialise in the common rooms.

During the day, you’ll be in your academic department, where you’ll be taught by world-leading experts in your subject. But it’s not all work. By the end of the week, we hope that you’ll leave inspired by your subject, with new knowledge and skills which will stand you in good stead for your final year of school. Subject Masterclasses.
