Get Ahead Program for Years 9, 10 & 11 Autumn Term 2021

Dear Parent

Get Ahead Program for Years 9, 10 & 11

Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust are pleased to announce that the highly successful Get Ahead program of online learning will continue this year, encouraging home learning and engagement in a variety of subjects. The program provides free online tutoring sessions with qualified teachers in the subjects of English, Maths, Science, Spanish, Geography and History. Students joining these sessions will benefit from expert tuition covering essential GCSE knowledge, skills and exam technique required for progress in the subject. This is a fantastic opportunity for your son/daughter to catch up and get ahead in their learning. Sessions are run as live Teams events and students may participate by asking questions via the Q&A ‘chat’ feature.

To engage in these sessions, which run between 6pm and 8pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, students will need to join via the Teams links listed on timetables that can be found on page 2 of this letter. Each link can be copied into a web browser address bar or typed in.

You can also find links on the Trust website at https://bridgwatercollegetrust.org.uk/ under the Get Ahead tab.

We hope that you will join us in encouraging your child to engage in the Get Ahead program to aid in their progress through the GCSE curriculum. The sessions are suitable for years 9, 10 and 11 and students are welcome to join any session, whether they want to revise, catch up on missed work, or get ahead with something new. Subjects cover all grades with a choice of foundation or higher tier for Maths, Science and Spanish. All sessions are recorded and may be viewed at different times, although live interaction is not possible on recordings. Please do encourage your son/daughter to talk to their teachers about the program.

If there are any questions about the Get Ahead program, or issues with connection or lack of equipment, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Yours sincerely

Kerry Harman

Leader of the Get Ahead program, Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust
