Advice for University Admissions Tutors (Covid-19)

Hucknall Sixth Form Centre closed at midday on 17 March 2020 and on-site subject lessons did not resume until the Autumn term. During lockdown students were taught online, mostly on Microsoft Teams. Some students learning was hampered by access to a computer and the internet, although this was resolved as quickly as possible.

Following our return to formal teaching, a number of positive Covid-19 cases have caused a number of students to need to isolate at home. Again, work has been provided digitally for students during this time.
