We are providing ‘remote study’ for students to complete via ClassCharts. Where families do not have access to the Internet, students will be provided with hard-copies of the materials. Please check for regular updates.
Where students are required to submit work for feedback, students will upload their work using Office 365. The teacher will instruct students to send them work via Office 365 email or upload their work onto Office 365 SharePoint.
Students have been provided with their passwords and received instructions on how to use ClassCharts and Office 365. If any family has forgotten or needs further advice around using both these resources, please contact the school via email@example.com.
During these exceptional times, Rye College continues to be focused on securing bright futures for all of our students. We are absolutely committed to support our students in partnership with our families, as a community, in maintaining their progress and learning as effectively as possible during a potentially extended closure.
We have an expectation that work will be:
- Set by staff frequently and regularly;
- Communicated in an effective way – via Classcharts;
- Appropriate and relevant to student needs;
- Completed in full by students;
- Monitored and assessed.
How often and how much?
While the school is partially closed to students, Rye College will continue to educate the students.
The amount of work set will reflect the school timetable: in other words, the amount of work provided will equivalent to the number of hours each subject is studied each week (nine hours for English, eight for Mathematics and so on).
|Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)||Hours per week|
|Key Stage 4 (Year 10)||Hours per week|
|All other subjects||3|
Students, supported by their families, should endeavour to maintain the routines of a normal day to allow their learning and development to remain on track.
Year 10 should continue to prepare for their GCSE and equivalent qualifications by revising as per their revision timetables. Some practical subjects, such as Physical Education and Arts, will set theory-based work in the first instance for Years 10 (exam groups).
Students and families without Internet and/or email access should contact the College. Work packs will be provided.

Our Year 11 students have been absolutely fantastic over the past few days. They have responded to these unprecedented circumstances maturely and thoughtfully. They are, rightly, concerned about what is going to happen with their qualifications after the Government announced that the examinations were cancelled. There are a number of options available but we are all awaiting clarification from the Secretary of State for Education on how their qualifications will be awarded.
We here at Rye College will work unstintingly to ensure that our students and your children get the recognition and acknowledgement for the hard-work and dedication they have shown over the last five years. We will also be fully supporting onward destination applications as well for our Year 11 students as time progresses.
More information will follow from the Secretary of State and we will update you once that is in and we have had the time as a team to process this and any implications that may arise from the message from government.
We remind you there is a dedicated revision webpage, providing revision advice and guidance as well as subject specific revision materials at www.ryecollege.co.uk/students/revision.
