Home Learning Hub

From Wednesday 15 April, we will be launching the next stage in our Home Learning plan for our Upper Sixth pupils. Normal lessons will no longer continue, but teachers will be on hand to assist in any way they can, through email or Roundee - as we have done thus far.

There will be a chance to complete optional assessment for your teachers to see more evidence for the award of your examination grades. Please follow the link here to find out more information on this from Mr Grey. 

Plymouth College Next Steps Programme

There will then be numerous options to choose from, according to your interests, passions and plans for the future. This will be all online and will be linked from this page. There will be different pathways for you to follow and a wide range of activities for you to choose to follow. We fully appreciate that in the current situation, your circumstances mean that you could be doing other things and perhaps volunteering in the local community. We as a school are very proud of our pupils for their dedication to others in this time. These resources will always be there for you - use them as much as you like. Please also don’t forget that your Head of Year, tutors and other staff are always there for you too. Please keep in contact with us. 

Pupils will have the chance to work under the guidance of a member of Plymouth College staff to begin preparing yourself for the next stages in life - be this university study, the world of work or anything else exciting! Each department have put together pre-university content for you. Should you wish to engage in this please email the relevant member of staff. Head of Department email addresses can be found below-

Don’t forget you have your Unifrog accounts - which have all manner of resources for you to access. Mr Summons will continue to be your first port of call in these times. 

There will be a series of guest speakers who will invite you to join them to learn all about all kinds of interesting things about the world - a true chance to broaden your horizons and develop new skills. There will also be an online portal for you to access, where you can engage with different types of learning. Learn something new, develop a new passion or follow your interests somewhere new. There will also be an opportunity for both year groups to access online learning courses, TED talks, MOOC’s as well as information and courses on life skills, podcasts and regular updates from the wider Plymouth College family. We will also be working on a wellbeing section for you, building on the work of The Hub and our staff in school. 

We are committed to providing our pupils with the best education (in the widest sense of the word) in these challenging times and we do hope you’ll join us in this new venture.
