We will be opening the school at the start of the academic year with full classroom learning.
We understand that some families, invariably due to travel constraints, and especially boarding students, will not be able to arrive from day one, and for these exceptional cases we are implementing a distance learning solution.
We believe that the measures described above will minimise the likelihood of a class being closed, but should this happen we are well prepared for the Virtual School. We have taken into account feedback from parents, students and staff over the last two terms and are also benefiting from learning best practice from our 68 sister schools in North Anglia.
We are proud to offer every student a quality education, tailored to their individual learning needs and inspired by best practice, even in difficult circumstances.
We are ready and equipped to continue to inspire students with innovative lessons, unique learning opportunities and high quality teaching as part of our blended learning approach.
Our Virtual School Experience has two key aspects:
- Connected time where students can learn from their teachers ‘live’ using our safe and secure online platform.
- Guided time where pupils learn independently through tailored tasks set by their teacher.
Finding the right balance between online and offline learning time allows students to make the most of personalised learning from home, regardless of their age.
