Summer School 2017 Corelli's Summer STORYHOUSE

A summer school experience where anything is possible for the imaginative and curious!

We are very proud of the annual Summer School as it is targeted to all students who are coming to Corelli College in September 2017.  It is especially aimed at those students who are interested in the visual or performance arts, want to meet like-minded people and aspire to find creative ways of expressing themselves. Students work with Corelli staff as well as with talented artists from Emergency Exit Arts.  We provide opportunities to develop new skills, work collaboratively and take risks, whilst working towards a cross-art form final piece.

The summer school provides an excellent way for our new Yr7 cohort to meet teachers from Corelli College and make friends in a warm and creative environment. Students were supported by a small team of older students from Corelli College as part of our mentoring and student leadership programme. Students going into Yr11 were our official photographers and they have really captured the spirit of the week.  

This year Corelli College’s Year 7 students invented a Corelli Island with miniature dynamic interventions interspersed with creative challenges, puppetry, creative writing, visual and performance arts. Students worked towards their Discover ArtsAward and explored the extraordinary in the ordinary.  

On the final day friends and family were invited to our STORYHOUSE where our creations were unveiled and marvelled upon!
