Remote learning will be set as a combination of Live online lessons and assignments on Teams. Live Lessons and assignments on Teams are in line with the curriculum which would have been covered had the pupils been in school. 

We will be delivering form time Live events and assemblies at the following times:


TUESDAY 8:45 am KS3 ASSEMBLY (fortnightly on yellow week - first assembly on 19.1.21)

WEDNESDAY 8:45 am KS4 ASSEMBLY (fortnightly on green week - first assembly on 13.1.21)




Links to LIVE ONLINE LESSONS and LIVE EVENTS will be emailed in advance.


If your child is unable to access LIVE ONLINE LESONS, due to unforeseen circumstances, the link can be used later in the day and will take you to a recording of the lesson. 


9B's timetable was updated on Thursday 14th January 2021.

Live Online Lessons and Home Learning Timetables

Accessing Home Learning  

All year groups will access their work through Microsoft Teams, via Office365. Homework will also be set in this way too. The following video provides a step by step guide of how to access Microsoft Teams. 

When a student is required to self-isolate they will have remote home learning opportunities provided, this includes students who are off school awaiting a test result for themselves or a household member or because they have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19. These students will have work set in line with the curriculum.

Each year group has an ‘Isolation Team’ set up which will contain curriculum related work for all subject areas. Individual students will be added to their isolation Team as soon as school are made aware that they are self isolating. Please refer to the 'Home Learning - A guide for students' document below for more details. 

Home learning will only include live lessons if the entire teaching set has received notification to isolate. A timetable of live lessons will be made available in the letters and documents below. More information about live lessons can be found here

Accessing Home Learning - Useful Guides and FAQs

Communication by E mail 

Students should be logging on daily to their student e mail on Outlook through Microsoft Office365 account using their school log on. If you have any problems logging on you can send an e mail to and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.


Students with SEN

Additional home learning support for students with SEN can be found here.


Accessing Microsoft Teams and Email using an X Box or a PlayStation

It is possible to access Office 365, Microsoft Teams and Email through a gaming device such as an X Box or a PlayStation as long as it has an internet connection. The following video, which was produced by another high school (thank you to Pontypridd High School) shows how you can do this. You can also connect a keyboard and a mouse to make it easier to navigate through this and complete home learning tasks online.
