  • Everything you need will be on Classcharts including Zoom Links
  • Contact your Head of Year if you are having trouble accessing Classcharts
  • 100% Live lessons for Year 11/13 and up to 50% for other years
  • Live lessons will be recorded for those unable to attend
  • Knowledge Organisers are on the website as well as on Classcharts
  • Arrive to live lessons 5 minutes before
  • Resources for the lesson e.g. worksheets will be on Classcharts
