We have made the decision that, in order to help prepare students in Year 9 for their return to the Academy into Key Stage 4, students will commence their option subjects from Monday 1st June 2020. From this point, students will only be required to complete online learning for the subjects they are studying from September 2020, consisting of: English, Mathematics, Science, History/Geography, and their three previously allocated option subjects.
The quality of the work that they produce will be taken into account when we consider students’ suitability for the courses that they have chosen. We are also trialling further online learning opportunities with Year 10 at present that we hope to expand to other Year Groups in the coming weeks, including video support and live feedback.
