Dear Parent/Guardian,

I hope you are well and that your son / daughter is looking forward to the Summer
School at the University of Bristol next month. The summer school is a fantastic
opportunity for all those taking part to find out more about university life, to
experience a taste of the academic programmes available at higher education level
and to work alongside undergraduate student mentors.

Your son / daughter should have received all the information they need to take part in
the week (there is additional information with this letter), but it is also important that
you feel confident about the programme and the welfare of your child. We have been
running the summer schools for 8 years and are experienced in ensuring every
aspect of the school runs smoothly.

I am the University staff member in charge of the Summer School and can be
contacted at any point in the week, to provide any further information, reassurance or
to pass on messages to your child! My mobile phone number is and will be on 24
hours a day. Your child will be staying in Badock Hall of residence and will be
supervised by trained student mentors and academic members of staff at all times. I
would be very grateful if you could ensure that your child brings any medication they
might need during the week so as to minimise any health issues during the week. It
would also be useful if you could remind your son/daughter to bring pens, pencils and
a calculator.

Please take your time to read through the enclosed information. It is very important
that we receive the Summer School Activity form and Method of Transport form no
later than . This will allow us to make the necessary arrangements in advance of
your son /daughter’s arrival.

I am sure your son / daughter will have a fantastic week and will come back enthused
about starting their journey into higher education.

Once again, if you have any need to contact me prior to, or during the week, please
do not hesitate to call me on the mobile number above.

Academic Sessions

Throughout your week at the University of Bristol you will be taking part in a
range of academic activities and lectures to give you an idea of the range of
subjects on offer in Higher Education. The sessions will be designed to be as
fun as possible and among the highlights during the week will be ‘The Physics
of Ice Cream’ and ‘The Politics of Big Brother.’


Non-Academic Sessions

A major part of the summer school is also to give you an idea of what life is
like as a student in Higher Education. We have therefore laid on some
activities that you will be taking part in during the week. These include:

      10-pin bowling
      Student Union Activities including Dj-ing, Dance and Film-making (see
       enclosed sheet)
      Sports Activities including football, tennis and rounders (see enclosed
       sheet)
      A formal dinner for all students on the Summer School (you will need
       to bring along smart clothes for this)
      A disco
      A barbecue (weather permitting!!)
      You will also be able to keep up with Big Brother and the World Cup
       throughout the week!
