Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning Programme

Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning (ODL) Programme was first established in March 2020 to make it possible for our students to continue their full timetable of A level and GCSE classes whilst the college premises were closed, in compliance with UK Government regulations to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The ODL Programme enables our students to carry on their education with as little disruption as possible. All online lessons can be delivered live-stream through a class-wide audio-visual call by their teachers using Google Meet. This allows students to see and hear their teacher, engage with their teachers and classmates and view on-screen illustrations of examples and learning materials provided by the teacher to support the lesson.

Our teachers can also set and collect homework using Google Classroom. Students submit their work via this platform which can then be reviewed in lesson time or through personal feedback online. Class assignments, subject tests and mocks can also be set via the platform. Teachers and students are able to monitor work completion and progress using this platform.

Ashbourne has additionally developed complementary online resources, such as video lectures, for extra revision to support our students and provided access to Unifrog, an online platform that allows students to continue working on their university applications remotely, with expert guidance and support from their teachers.

Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning Programme continues to run during periods of lockdown and, when the premises are open, for students who are unable to attend classes in person for specific reasons relating to COVID-19. Overseas students will be able to take part in lessons, conducted by the teacher in the classroom with the rest of the class, using our online learning platform and resources.

We believe that our Online Distance Learning Programme will enable students from all over the world to benefit from Ashbourne’s high quality tuition, exceptional individual attention and personalised support, allowing them to reach the highest grades.

All of the Ashbourne teachers are very kind and friendly. Our principle Mike really helped me a lot in my university application. I got many unforgettable experiences at Ashbourne such as UKMT Maths Challenge and UKMT Team Maths Challenge. I want to say thank you to all the teachers and staff who helped me in these two years

I have had a very valuable experience working at Ashbourne. I feel lucky that I got such a great opportunity to deal with different kinds of jobs which include; document preparations, helping at some organised opening evenings or dealing with students’ enquiries. Having a chance to deal with these tasks I feel that I have already gained a lot of valuable improvements in the skills which are needed in a college administrative working environment. The Ashbourne staff are very friendly and helpful. They never hesitated to give me advice on the jobs I was doing and what I should and should not do. I can not thank them enough for such great help and experience during all those times I was working at Ashbourne
