Welcome to Remote Learning

In the event of a full or partial lockdown, we would like to reassure parents, carers and pupils that our aim is to ensure students are able to continue with their learning with as little disruption as possible.  

From Thursday 7th January, school will only be open to vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers. All students will access their normal timetable through remote live lessons, planned and delivered by their subject teachers. These lessons will be delivered through the platform of Teams. Where activities are better suited to remote learning than live lessons, students will be set activities that they can complete more flexibly. 

We have well-established routines and systems in place to deliver and monitor remote learning and detailed guidance can be found on the relevant pages within. 

Supporting our school families whilst learning at home.


To ensure parents and pupils are fully supported in the current climate, please be aware of the following pathways of support.
