Get Ahead program for Years 9 to 11

Dear Parent

Get Ahead program for Years 9 to 11

As you may be aware, Bridgwater and Taunton College Trust have initiated a program to encourage 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, English and Geography.

To engage in these sessions which run from 6pm to 7pm Mondays to Thursdays, students will need to 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 GCSE 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 GCSE curriculum. The sessions are suitable for Years 9, 10 and 11. Please also encourage your son/daughter 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.
