Home Learning

There may be an odd occasion when a student is not able to attend school (snow days, injury, exclusion etc) and it has not been possible for work to be sent home or collected from school. If this is unfortunately the case then first of all we would ask that any outstanding homework or course work is undertaken as a priority. Should this be completed then we would ask that students work through the websites and suggestions listed below in order to find something suitable to their age and current programme of study.

All school drives and most software can be accessed by using the quick ‘dashboard’ link form the homepage or by clicking here.
