School & College Closure Resources

Please find below a suggested timetable and website links to some work activities for students to complete if they are now staying at home or in self-isolation. We would recommend to try to encourage your child to do some work each day. When students return to College they should bring any work with them to share with their tutor so we can see what they have been up to! Please bear with us as staff prepare additional work and we upload this to the website.

Students may also wish to e-mail photos of their learning to adding the tutors name in the subject bar.
