The Hub provision will take place from 8.30 – 3.00 each day with break and lunch at the usual time. Your child will be taught by their subject teachers via the Google Meet platform and will be supervised by a consistent group of experienced staff who they know well. Students can attend the provision full time or on selected days if you wish and they will be provided with a free hot lunch.

If you are requesting this provision because you are a ‘critical worker’, you will need to provide evidence (e.g. a letter from your employer), via email to before your child commences the provision.

Remote Learning

All other students will now learn remotely. For Years 11 and 13, this will be via live “Google Meet” lessons from Wednesday 6th January. For all other year groups, live lessons via “Google Meet” will begin on Monday 11th January, with work being set on “Show My Homework” on the 6th, 7th and 8th of January. If you have any queries, please see the Remote Learning FAQs or email us.


We are able to provide free laptops for children who do not have access to a suitable device / internet so they can learn at home. Please complete this form if you would like to request one.


On Wednesday 13th January, the Secretary of State for Education launched a two week consultation on how students In Years 11 and 13 will be assessed this summer. He has indicated that there may be a series of assessments that schools can use to judge student performance, in addition to other internal information we have for each student.

We understand that the current national expectation is that all students should be taught for as long as possible on each qualification (grades will be moderated and released at the latest possible point in the summer).

We are currently reviewing how we will be able to run further mock examination processes.

Summary from Y11 Parents evening.

Therefore, the current message for all examination students is:

  • You will be assessed at the end of this year, and you must continue to work hard.
  • You must engage in all your lessons, through the Remote Learning timetable – and complete all work, and revision tasks s set.

The best way that you can support is:

  • Ensure your child logs in on time for every lesson and completes all work

This page will be updated regularly – as always please contact the school if you have any questions.
