Virtual Learning Resources

This page explains our remote learning arrangements for the summer term, with important information for both students and their families. We want you to be able to access all the support you need while studying from home.

As an academy, we are using online platforms: Edmodo and Microsoft Teams to deliver quality resources for our students. Personalised class codes have been sent home to pupils by post. If pupils still require support they can inform their coaches during their weekly check in or email

Online resources

Pupils in years 7-10 all have access to online platforms including: Bedrock Vocabulary, Mathswatch and MyMaths at home or via the relevant apps.


All year groups also have an Edmodo account and pupils should use the codes that they have been sent to access their learning. Your daughter has access to the academy’s Edmodo page, which enables pupils to view pre-prepared material, relevant video clips, quizzes and receive feedback on the work submitted. The year group access codes can be found below:

Year 7: 3hdrws

Year 8: aetfir

Year 9: kyied5

Year 10: cjfiff

Year 11: jk37dr

In addition, your daughter will need to join the individual subject groups to access her tasks. Individual class codes have been sent to your home address. If pupils have any issues with access they can inform their coaches in their weekly call/email.

Microsoft Teams

All pupils have access to Microsoft Teams and you will find your classes, subjects or year groups are already allocated in MS Teams. You can download MS Teams onto your devices at home and your mobile for free. View or download a guide on how to access email, OneDrive, Teams and other Office 365 apps.

Please do remember our etiquette for remote learning  and how we interact to support one another.

Timetables - creating a structure

Our advice is to try to achieve as much ‘structure’ as you possibly can with regard to learning at home, with set times for work and set times for relaxation and other activities. The tasks that are set have been designed with remote learning in mind and your daughter should be able to work on most tasks relatively independently.

As far as possible, do chat with your daughter about the learning she has undertaken every day and monitor her computer/mobile use to check that she is completing work. Her teachers will be checking in and will contact you if there are concerns that she is not completing work.

Key Stage 3 timetable

We would like you to try to work for approximately four hours each day. We know that, some days, this will be impossible and that there may be days when you can achieve more than this. Do let us know how you’re getting on and make sure that you stay in touch with your teachers to ask any questions, share your learning and let us know how we can help.

Key Stage 4 timetable

See below or download as pdf

KS4 TT 14.5.20

Should you require paper copies or workbooks for use at home, please do get in touch via the address and we’ll send materials home.

Contacting teachers

As remote learning continues to develop and grow, there may be times that students need to contact staff directly to support their learning. Coaches will contact pupils weekly by email/phone to check on students and their well-being. However, if pupils want to contact their subject teachers or head of house please email them directly.

Our most common problem is that students need their log-in/passwords reset for their school email or online account. Please call us at the academy and we can arrange this for you.

Personal development

As an academy, our vision to promote and develop pupils’ character, courage and conscience remains extremely important during this time. Therefore, we have included an allotted time daily for Personal, Social and Health Education, mental health and wellbeing support and resources. This includes a weekly PSHE and well-being resource, assemblies, guided meditation and careers curriculum (UNIFROG).

Thank you. A link to our Remote Learning Guidance PowerPoint will be added here shortly.
