YOUNGSTERS have been preparing for their move to secondary school by learning how to be a DJ.

Pupils attended a summer school at Admiral Lord Nelson School in Portsmouth.

It’s funded by the Department of Education who provide money to schools to set up events to make the transition from junior school to secondary school easier. It is specifically for children who receive free school meals.

They took part in a graffiti session and had their turn at being a DJ, as well as having taster sessions in English, maths and science.

Zoe Sampson, enterprise manager at the school, said: ‘We have delivered a mixture of fun, encouraging stuff like DJing and graffiti and taster lessons so the kids know what to expect from a secondary school education.

‘It’s been brilliant.

‘The feedback that we have had from the parents and the kids has been amazing.

‘The kids have really enjoyed it. They feel a lot more comfortable about coming into big school.

‘In terms of building their confidence bringing them into secondary school it’s a massive benefit for them.’
