10 June 2021

Dear Parent

Get Ahead program for Years 7-9

As you may be aware, Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust have initiated a program to encourage and support home learning and engagement in a variety of subjects. The program involves free online tutoring sessions with qualified teachers in the subjects of Science, Maths and English.

If they wish to engage in these sessions, which run from 6pm to 7pm Mondays to Wednesday, students can join via the links listed below. Each link can be copied into a web browser address bar or typed in.

The sessions cover a variety of key topics and involve live exam answers followed by a live Q&A that all students are encouraged to participate in via the ‘chat’ feature on Teams.

We hope that you encourage your child to engage in the new ‘Get Ahead’ program to aid in their progress through the core curriculum. The sessions are suitable for years 7, 8 and 9. Please also encourage your child to talk to their teachers about the program.

If there are any questions about the ‘Get Ahead’ program, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Yours sincerely

Miss E Forward
