Summer School Research

The Department for Education (DfE) is conducting research on summer schools. Summer schools offer an opportunity to help pupils catch up on missed learning caused by the pandemic, while supporting their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

This research will provide important information on how well summer schools have worked, as well as pupil and school feedback on what impact they have had on education recovery and pupil wellbeing.
