This is guidance for year 10 and year 12 students who are working remotely either because they have self-isolated or the academy has been temporarily closed as a result of the Corona Virus pandemic.

To ensure our students are as disadvantaged as little as possible by this disruption we have activated our remote learning policy. The details of which can be found below.

Remote Learning FOR YEAR 10 and YEAR 12

Looking for information for year 11 and year 13 students? click this link.

Appropriate learning activities are being set for all year 10 and year 12 students on a weekly basis. The tasks set mirror as closely as possible the learning that would otherwise be delivered in the classroom.

Students working remotely will be expected to spend as much time on their studies as they would when following their normal timetable.

Learning guides and resources for the week are made available by 9am every Monday.

Learning guides will be delivered using a standardised template and will be shared in a google drive folder entitled ‘BOA Remote Education Files’.

This folder has been shared with students via their BOA VLE accounts but can also be accessed via the following link:

The shared ‘BOA Remote Education Files’ google drive does not require a log-in to view resources and instructions. This means parents and students are able to access it from anywhere on any device as long as you have internet access.

Please note that students will need to use their BOA VLE account to email teachers and upload evidence of their work.

For support accessing the files and/or logging in please contact

Email is our primary communication tool. Teachers will respond to student questions and queries either on a case by case basis or in bulk communications.

Teachers will ensure that students receive feedback on their progress in line with departmental and academy marking policy.

The learning guides, resources, and emails may be supplemented in some areas with other digital tools such as Google Classroom, Google Hangouts, Mathswatch, Senica Learning, GCSE Pod and Ezy Education. If your child is instructed to access these but has any technical difficulty, please either contact the subject teacher or

Every Monday at 9am we will send a bulk text message and email to students and parents as a reminder to check the google derive for the latest instructions and activities.


Examinations and BTEC externally assessed units:

At present the government has advised that no examinations or assessments will take place this academic year. We will be in touch with further details as soon as we have them. We are currently in the process of compiling evidence of student progress and in-year achievement in case we are asked to provide this in the near future.

Thank you for your on-going support at this difficult time.
