A booklet 'Supporting Remote Learning' has been posted out to families with children in Years 7 - 11, which we hope will supplement the live lessons which are taking place along with the work which is being set on Show My Homework.

We appreciate that many people will find the coming months very challenging. If we were in school together at a time like this, we would be drawing on lessons from our faith to help us through. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be sharing some videos which we hope will be helpful and will give all members of a school community something to refelct on and think about.
St. Matthew's Church also have a Youtube channel which includes some thoughts and reflections which some members of the school community may find useful at this time. Youtube link
