A

record 43 nationalities at Concord’s 2019 Summer School

Tuesday July 2, 2019

Students from a record number of 43 different nationalities will be spending three weeks in Shropshire at one of Concord’s Summer Schools, in July or August. A total of 297 students from around the world are booked on courses which are ‘more extensive than ever before’ according to Summer School Director, Mrs Kari Quant. A new active science pathway course has computer coding as the highlight. The basic introduction to computer programming will be attended by 76 students over the three weeks. They will be given a minimum of seven and a half hours of tuition by a specialist computer science teacher too. Another new course is ‘Future Leaders’ which will teach 14 students how to effectively public speak and debate. Trips during the three weeks will include watching Manchester United in Cardiff, Matilda the Musical at Birmingham Hippodrome, cultural tours of Liverpool and half day excursions into Shrewsbury. A total of 70 staff will join Concord’s year round support team, with students arriving later today for the July courses.
