Hey there... I was just wondering if anyone knows any good summer schools for 16-17 year olds. Since I’m finding it hard to find any and even If I do a lot are already past the deadline date or require a big fee cost that I don’t think I can afford. Maybe some of you have done some in the past already and would highly recommend doing... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I definitely recommend the Sutton Trust summer school if you have the grades for it - it's totally free with many uni and course options. It might be past the deadline now, though, I'm not sure.

If it's open, or you can go next year, definitely apply! I went to the English one at Cambridge and I wouldn't be studying here now if I hadn't.
