Pupils and staff embarked on a virtual learning journey on Monday 23rd March.

Utilising the technology of Google classroom, pupils are able to access a full timetable from home after the nationwide school closure programme due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Teachers are on hand to respond to questions the children have throughout the day. So far they have been blown away by how quickly their pupils have bought into the whole concept and, showing true resilience, have simply adapted to learning from home.

Following a morning of core subjects, children follow a ‘what next?’ programme in the afternoon, including exercise and reading. On Monday they even attended a virtual West End performance of ‘Wind in the Willows’. www.willowsmusical.com

Director of Studies Rachael Shakeshaft said: “Seeing all the pupils appear in our virtual classes, being able to chat to them and help them with their learning is so important to us. Teachers have shown such dedication getting this up and running so quickly. We are so proud of our pupils adapting to working this way.”
