Where relationships are at the heart of the school and
the school is at the heart of the community

Students working from home

These are strange times and we will all take some time to get used to them, but hopefully you are keeping well and settling into new routines. These pages have been created to keep you up-to-date with developments and as a central portal for all things connected to the school closure. 


Keeping up with developments

We are regularly communicating with parents via email (including an update each Tuesday and Friday) so please keep an eye out for those. Copies of all correspondence to date are also here on the website. You will also be able to keep in touch by following our Facebook page

If you need to update your email address please email the office.


Latest news

We're working hard behind the scenes to get an exciting new online learning environment set up and ready to launch after Easter and will keep you updated with progress and what this means for students in our twice-weekly updates.

We have a new IT support system if you're struggling with technology:


GCSEPod

We recently invested in GCSEPod, the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,250 schools worldwide. 

Students now have access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable: every Pod is mapped to an exam board, and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams needed for GCSE success – all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists. 

One of the best things about GCSEPod is that you can download any Pod to a mobile device, and then they can watch them at any time, in any place, with or without internet. It’s like they’re carrying a whole set of textbooks in your pocket! 

GCSEPod also has the ability to identify knowledge gaps and automatically send playlists to help fill them!

For more information and details of how to set up and log-in please have a re-read of this letter.
