I'm currently doing GCSE Latin but I'd like to stretch myself a bit further. Would anyone know of some good vocab lists to learn over the summer or series of Latin idioms and phrases to increase my circle of competence?

The great Colebourn Latin Sentence and Idiom (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Latin-Sente.../dp/0862922658) is a good advanced syntax/idiom course, with its own vocab list.

You can also just try reading stuff, if you can find a good text guide that will explain syntax/idiom!

Good luck

i did gcse latin and did the cambridge course- we got given at the start of year 11 the full vocabulary list with every word we would ever come across in the actual gcse. maybe this isnt 'stretching youself' but it would certainly be a good idea to maybe start learning the vocabulary thoroughly now (all the principle parts, any irregular verbs, pronouns, nouns etc? especially since you most likely havent got much to do at the moment since on lockdown. i would have definitely found that helpful before going into year 11 since no one would have bothered to do it over the summer
hope this helps ?
