Useful information for students and parents

Whilst we all look forward to the Queen’s College community being together again as soon as we are advised to, at this time we must all do everything we can to protect the NHS and comply with government guidance to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Closures of organisations, isolation and social distancing restrictions, while necessary, create inevitable challenges.

Covid-19 Government guidance on social distancing

Everyone at Queen’s remains fully committed to delivering excellence and will continue to work tirelessly to support the teaching, learning and wellbeing of our pupils, throughout this challenging period.

Daily online, curriculum specific lessons are being made available by our subject teachers via Classcharts in line with the usual academic timetable and we recommend that, as far as possible, pupils should follow their timetable and structure of the day. If you are experiencing any issues accessing online lessons, please contact your tutor in the first instance.

In addition to online work being set, listed below are some additional resources which may be useful for staying busy at home over the coming weeks.
