Coronavirus: Online Learning

Year 7-10 & 12 Learning

Students in Y7-10 should try to follow their normal timetables – completing work from the subjects that they would normally have each day. Staff will be uploading different tasks at different times each week, so content will be changing and new materials uploaded for students to complete. Students can email their subject staff for support if required. Students should work independently as much as possible. Students can email staff their work, however our current focus will be on Y11 and Y13, for obvious reasons. Please email [email protected] should you require further support.

For students without access to the internet at home, we are in the process of creating hard copy packs consisting of English, Maths, and Science work. We hope these packs will be available from MON 23rd onward. Parents can collect from main reception or, if self-isolating, we can deliver work.

Year 7 to 10. Click here to get work.

Year 12. Click here to get work.

Staff will be on hand between the hours of 08:30 and 15:00 to answer any queries. Please use the app messaging system (MyED) or contact via email directly using the staff email details below.
