Students / Myfyrwyr

Working from home when the school is closed.

Teachers are working hard preparing resources you can use at home.

Please read all this page for lots of information about how we can support you, and how you can work independently at home.

Many subjects are now hosting resources on Google Classroom - please use the link on the right for the classroom codes.

We have also created a March 2020 folder  for you to use in every subject in the Shared Area. Work will be added on a weekly basis.

Try and spend the time you would usually be in lessons on each subject over a week- and of course do more if you want to! This is especially important for KS4 and KS5 pupils.

There is a timetable attached at the bottom of this page if you need some guidance on how to structure your day.

You can access your files on the shared area and your area using the link and instructions below:

You may need to install an authenticator app first which will give you a code to enter as well as your username and password.
