For students having to undergo quarantine or are unable to travel to the U.K. or prefer to study remotely for the autumn term, the College is offering remote study during the autumn term in place of face-to-face teaching.
Please find below a series of questions and answers regarding this term’s remote study.
The objectives of our online learning programme are:
- To enable students studying remotely to achieve the same subject coverage as those attending face-to-face
- To enable students to have regular contact with their Senior Tutor
- To continue to support students in their academic and pastoral needs and goals
- To provide students with a structure and clarity to their studies
How are we delivering online learning?
Students can attend lessons via Microsoft Teams with all classrooms have camera and voice capability to enable them to do so.
What if my country’s time zone is very different from that of the U.K.?
All lessons will be recorded and available for twelve hours after the end of each lesson and remote study students will be able to log in to access these recorded lessons.
How will work be marked and assessed?
Students will submit completed assignments to teachers via email or file sharing and will receive feedback in the usual manner.
How will students access the resources they need?
Students will be given clear instruction by teachers as to how to find the resources they require to complete the work.
What can parents do to support their son or daughter?
All parents have been sent their son or daughter’s timetable and we encourage you to ensure they maintain the same structure they would have had if they were in College. Please do not hesitate to contact their Senior Tutor if you have any concerns.
Who should parents send their questions to?
Please send any questions regarding your son or daughter’s work to their Senior Tutor, who will liaise with the relevant teacher.
We appreciate that although many students and teachers now have experience of remote study there are nonetheless likely to be challenges to what is described as blended learning. We would like to thank you in advance for your support and help as staff and students adjust to this mode of delivery.
