Summer Schools

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we will not be running Summer Schools at Homerton this year.  However, we will be running virtual subject open days, and will organise some more extensive subject-based virtual learning activities later in the year.  

To be eligible to apply for these more extensive activities, applicants must:

  • Be in Year 12, S5 or equivalent (home UK only)
  • Attend a state-maintained school or college (applications will also be considered from students who are on a means-tested scholarship to an independent school)
  • Have achieved at least 5 A’s or 7’s at GCSE or equivalent (e.g. National 5’s), and be on track to acheive AAA or above at A-level (or equivalent)

In addition, priority will be given to applicants who meet one or more of the following criteria, though this is not a prerequisite to applying:

  • The first generation in their family to attend university
  • Currently eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past six years
  • Attend a school or college in a deprived area, or an area with low progression to higher education (based upon IMD and POLAR4 data)
  • Currently, or have previously been, in local authority or foster care
  • Attend a school or college in one of Homerton's link areas (see introduction)
