    The Summer School project represents the foundation of a long-term approach to promoting social mobility. It is well established that high-quality schooling essential to giving young people the best start in life. Talented children from low income families are less hampered by their talents, and more by the restrictions they become accustomed to through their environment. EYLA believes passionately that with young people, 'what they see is what they'll be', and the summer school captures that.


    Through its Scholars programme, EYLA has developed a unique educational niche enabling young people from less well-off backgrounds to access some of the best independant and state boarding schools. We know that there are far more children capable of benefitting from that kind of experience than we are able to handle through the Scholars programme. The Summer School model provides a means of widening access, and creating an experience that will have lasting benefits for the participants.
