Remote Learning

When the school has to close during term time or when we have students who have ‘enforced absences’ (for example who are shielding or self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic), we provide work to ensure that learning continues. 

While at home you will be set work in line with your normal timetable in school.

Please check the Google Classroom for your class and access learning materials and complete any work that has been posted there. If there is no specific work for you there, then you should access the work linked below during your lessons, while at home.

Year 12 & 13
  • Please first check your A level Maths Google Classroom for any specific work set.
  • If you would like more, you can find details on the generic "Class 2020- Maths A Level Year 12/13" Google Classroom, which you should all be part of.
  • Click on Classwork and you will find resources for Year 12 and Year 13 A level Maths.
  • These will be continually updated.
