During the home-study period, students should allocate their time evenly across their subjects by essentially following their normal timetable Monday to Friday. It will be useful for them to retain some routine and this will also ensure they retain valuable recreation time in moderation and take routine study breaks.
Communication during home-study will be done through the Academy Webmail which you can accessed directly without going through the Remote Desktop.
Home-study information and worksheets have been uploaded to the following location on the website (Publications > Home Study). Since we have a high volume of users wanting to access the Remote Desktop, we have included as many documents as possible in this folder, that can be accessed using your normal internet browser, and therefore avoid the need for the Remote Desktop.
Many of the study packs use websites such as GCSEpod. These can be accessed via any computer, tablet or smartphone, without going through the remote desktop, and students who require Adobe Creative Cloud for their studies can download and use this software for free by logging in with your personal account.
If you have any technical issues, please feel free to email ICT Support via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01529 301156. We may not be able to provide you with immediate support but will call you back when a technician becomes available.
