Accessing learning and additional resources

For those students who will not be attending school during the closure, there are lots of resources available to them whilst they are at home.

Hegarty Maths

All students have an account on the Hegarty Maths website:

Once students are on the site, they just need to follow the on-screen instructions.  If students need help with their password, they can email their maths teacher for a reset.

As well as work that has been set by their class teacher, students can also access any of the subject tasks that are on the website, so the work available will never run out!

Please note: due to unprecedented demand on the website, access is unpredictable, but the following link will give you an update on the status of the site:


All students have a GCSEPod account.  The site can be found here:

All students have been given their login details, but please contact the school if login details don't appear to be working.

As well as any work set by teachers, students can access all content on the site.

Further resources and links can be found at the bottom of this page.

Student Home Classroom

Delta Academies Trust have put together a learning timetable for all students, which can be accessed online.  Students who are working at home should follow this daily timetable.  Instructions on how to access the online classroom can be found below:
