- Seneca Learning - A platform that provides a series of questions to aid revision in a number of curriculum subjects
- Hegarty Maths – A platform that provides instructional videos and questions to test knowledge and understanding in Maths
- Pearson Active Learn – A website that contains online textbooks for some subjects at KS4. Please note, only certain students will have access to this, if they require a resource published on here. The students who need to access this will have been given a log in by their class teacher.
- As a result of campus closure, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students and educators, so that they can continue their work remotely. Please follow the instructions below to enable access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps (including photoshop) on your personal device.
