Year 7 Learning Zone

This section of the website is for both parents/carers and students and aims to support your learning. As well as there being guidance under specific subject headings we have set out below some more useful general information. Students please remember that we are here to help you. If you are having problems with your learning either in school or at home you can talk to your teacher, your tutor, or Mrs Yates (Year 7 Manager). Parents/carers can contact your child’s teachers, tutor or Mrs Yates via Insight or by contacting the school directly.

How to access your work and useful information from home

School subscribes to Home Access+ which provides students with secure online access to view their network resources, browse network drives and folders, download files from school to the home computer and upload files to school. The Remote Apps section lets them run software that is on the school system remotely at home.

For example if you do not have Powerpoint on the home computer they can still do their powerpoint homework by using this feature.

Network resources such as lists of vocabulary for Spanish and German can be found on the library drives through Home Access+. More specific detail will be given under subject headings.


Both students and parents/carers have their own INSIGHT accounts. Insight provides information on assessment, attendance, behaviour, examinations and homework.

Homework Club

We recognise that students may need, or prefer, to work during their social time when at school. Therefore we are providing an opportunity to do this during lunchtimes in M202 from Monday to Thursday every week.

Students will be able to access a quiet, purposeful study space where they can access homework via INSIGHT, print off work, complete work on a computer if necessary (e.g. MathsWatch) and use the internet or library books to find information.

These sessions are run by the Academic Co-ordinators and there will be a calm working environment.
