Remote Learning

If you are self isolating at home, it is important that you maintain a routine and continue with your education. We recommend that you use your school timetable to help keep a sense of normality and to ensure you get everything done.  All work for isolating students is published on your individual Google Classrooms for each subject, please refer to this in the first instance.  If you are confused or unsure, please get intouch with your class teachers by email.  If a substantial amount of the year group is at home isolating that teachers, where possible, will deliver live lessons using the meet link on your Google Classroom, your individual teachers will inform you of these.  

Below is some information to help you manage your studies whilst working from home.
