The latest information regarding the College closure and provision for students was e-mailed to Lower Sixth Students and Parents/Carers on 10th June.
Remote Learning is taking place for all students. Teachers are in regular contact with their students, sessions are being delivered via Microsoft Teams as part of the provision and significant concerns are being discussed with parents.
Over the next couple of weeks students will be having 1-2-1 reviews with their teachers remotely to discuss progress this year and finalise predicted grades for UCAS. Information on the College’s approach to assessment and our predicted grades policy has been available under Parents Portal and on Godalming Online for students. A Student Review will be published to parents on Monday 6th July via Parents Portal to report on progress with their studies so far this year.
Working remotely is a new experience for all of us, so please do bear with us. We are all doing our best during these challenging times and will do all we can to ensure that the impact of this crisis on our students is minimised as much as possible. These are very difficult circumstances for us all but what matters most is our health and wellbeing and that of our loved ones. Keep safe and well.
A summary version of the Covid-19 Health and Safety Risk Assessment can be found in the Publications area of this website.
All students have been sent information and resources to help with their wellbeing. Public Health England have also issued some very useful guidance to help during this time.
