Bingley Grammar School

Summer Activities

We appreciate our students may have less things to fill their time with during the summer break this year and so we have put together a ‘Summer Activities’ page as well as a google drive folder students can access. All the activities will be completely optional but may help students feel more prepared and ready for the beginning of the new academic year in September.

Click here to view instructions on how to access the Home Education google drive where you can find Summer Activities folders for Years 7 to 12 >>

Please remember these activities are optional and here purely to help keep you occupied whilst spending so much time at home.
