Update 6 May:
Opportunity for Year 10 students.
There is an exciting opportunity for year 10 students to participate in a 30 hours Learning in Lockdown virtual work experience, 18th – 22nd May 2020. This is aimed at students who enjoy STEM subjects and want to pursue careers in construction, design/architecture, engineering and sustainability. On completion of the week’s experience and successful moderation of a final report, you will achieve an Industrial Cadets Silver Award.
You can find more information here. If you are interested, you need to email Md Nelson at email@example.com by 12th May 2020.
We have put in place arrangements for students to be able to continue their learning during the coronavirus outbreak.
This is a difficult time for everyone but there is no reason why study should not continue.
In order to mitigate the impact of lost learning time we have made the important decision to provide students with work to be completed during their time away from school. Please read the letter from headteacher Arthur Barzey here.
Students will be able to access all of their learning resources below on our 'One Drive' learning platform.
Before the Easter break, we also delivered or posted 800 home learning packs to families (although all of the contents of the packs are also available online).
Science students also have access to SENECA.
Why not also check out Springpod - a free resource. It's a new interactive platform that lets you experience careers learning that is delivered virtually so you can join in from the comfort of your own home. It features inspiring career stories and guidance from experts across different fields – from technology to sport, and everything in between.
The Oak National Academy has recently been set up and is also providing lessons through video in a broad range of subjects, including maths, English, art and languages. You can click on the link below to see what is available in which year group.
Home learning weekly schedule
Please be advised that it is expected that students will complete the following work while they are out of school.
While we do not yet know the date at which students will return from this unexpected absence from school, teachers will be able to assess the learning of students while they have been away and look at the gaps that will need filling in order to ensure progress is made.We have produced a weekly schedule for each year group setting out the subjects to study each morning and afternoon. You can read it here.
