Studying from Home: Help Page

Update: 25 March 2020

Due to limited staffing at school, we are no longer able to issue Study Packs (paper resources) for students who are struggling to complete work online.

Students struggling to complete work online (who have not received a Study Pack) can choose to use the Daily Home-School Timetable below. Work completed can be showcased when we return to school.

A range of free online resources are also being posted to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social media channels.

Message from the Principal, 25.03.20

Whilst school is closed due to the UK government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, students who are feeling well are expected to study at home. Where possible, students should complete their work online and submit to teachers at least once a week. Teachers will provide feedback to students at least once a week.

Students using the Study Packs or Daily Home-School Timetable can share photos of their work with their teachers by email if they are able or keep the documents safe until their return to school.

Thank you for your continued support and for bearing with us as we adapt to a new way of working.
