remote learning home

Welcome from the headmaster

In these times of uncertainty, Sedbergh will not lose its ethos, values or traditions; it will simply adapt to its changing circumstances. We will continue to support our pupils to achieve the very best of the Sedberghian education and look forward to welcoming them back on campus as soon as possible.

In this mini-website, you will find information relating to our processes of remote learning, how our school day has been adapted for the Summer Term and our plans for Academic Study, including a special focus on how Year 11 and 13 are going to be judged on their exam grades.

However, as in real life, a Sedbergh education is far more than just academics, and we want to remain strongly tied with all our community.  We have sections for you to read about our pastoral support and care, our sport and extra-curricular provision, as well as links for you to use if you get stuck at any point.

We are proud that while our school buildings remain closed, our Sedbergh education remains fully open.

Quote from Y9 parent: “The Sedbergh experience in comparison to my other child at a different school has been superlative.”

Quote from Y11 parent: “It has been really positive, whilst we work at home it has given our son structure to his day.  We feel that the learning is very beneficial and it’s nice he still sees his teachers and friends.”

Quote from Y12 parent: “As an overseas parent I felt more connected to the kids learning and school life. It’s fun to listen to them chat to teachers and peers, and interesting to hear more about what they are actually involved in at school”

Quote from Y9 parent: “We feel with such short notice, Sedbergh has provided an excellent remote schooling facility.”

Quote from Y9 and Y11 parent: “Quite amazing to be sitting on the veranda in the Rift Valley and have the children linked to their schoolteachers and peers and be able to continue with their learning!!”

Quote from Y12 parent: “Like many others my daughter was very upset about leaving school early, particularly not knowing for how long. However, remote learning has enabled her to feel connected to the school community and gives her structure and purpose to her day.”
