Y9 Live Lessons

We are very pleased to inform parents that we are able to offer live lessons to our students in Year 9. These students will have 25% of their normal lessons each week. Parents and students should read carefully the timetable below which details which lesson students are expected to join. 

 Students will access live via the following platforms or apps.

1. Google classrooms (
2. Google hangouts meet (

Both of these platforms are logged in with the following credentials;

Username: school email address
Password: Welcome!1

 Teachers will post a 'live link' on Google classrooms for each lessons which students will click to join  the hangouts meet session. 
 Please ensure your child has access to these two platforms or apps and knows what lessons they are due to attend. A full guidance document can be found here The timetable can be viewed above.

We have secured this high quality provision to ensure students do not fall behind and we therefore, expect all students to attend each live lesson.
