Home Learning

Despite our school building being closed to most students, learning will continue and the school is committed to making sure your education continues during the length of the closure.  We will be doing this via Showmyhomework for younger students and via Google Classroom and Google Hangouts for older students.  Older students have all been shown how to access and operate these facilities. 

Home Learning For Year 7, Y8 and Y9

Your subject teacher will provide one task/assessment that will appear on 'show my homework' on a weekly basis and feedback will be provided.  Please see the assessed task timetable.
 
We will have the same expectations around behavior as we normally do in school.

Home Learning for Year 9

Year 9 students will have 25% of their normal lessons each week.  Parents and students should read carefully the timetable and guidance on the link here, which details which lessons students are expected to join.

In addition, your subject teacher will provide one task/assessment that will appear on 'Show my Homework' on a weekly basis and feedback will be provided.

We will have the same expectations around behavior as we normally do in school.
