Thornhill College – Remote & Blended Learning Support for Students and Parents
Whilst it is our aim to maintain maximum face-to-face teaching and learning during the current pandemic, we would like to share with you the contingency plans that have been put in place by Thornhill College should we experience a localised or wider lockdown.
At Thornhill College we have reflected on our pedagogical goals and how technology might help to achieve these. We have learnt from the experience during lockdown and gathered feedback from our pupils, staff, parents / carers to create a remote and blended learning approach that will ensure all students are supported and engaged.
On their return to school our pupils have received training on the effective use of Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams, as platforms to aid a remote or blended learning approach. We have also created detailed step by step student / parent guides on the use of this software as a further means of support.

We have also created a Remote Learning Readiness document so students and parents / carers know what they can expect from the school to support learning during periods of remote learning. Please click on the link below to access this document:
