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.

Why Choose Ashbourne College?

I was drawn to apply to Ashbourne at first based on their phenomenal reputation in the UK, but the reality far exceeded my expectations… No single teacher had the same approach to teaching a subject, which was much more refreshing than the standard lecture & questions approach. From team quizzes during revision period, to weekly workbooks matching the syllabus – the organisation and creativity of my tutors really helped the content stick in my head, which made revision easier when exams came around. My personal tutor was extremely supportive throughout my UCAS application. He would reply emails near instantly if I had any questions, be on hand for regular support when I needed it and loaned me materials to read directly related to my chosen course – Law. Albeit slightly frustrating with the constant tweaking required to my personal statement every week, this was more of a fine tuning process as he would not stop until he knew my personal statement was as perfect as it could be, and I am very grateful for his determination! The hard work and determination required of you at Ashbourne really set me up for life at university as I knew what I had to do to stay ahead and still even applied revision tactics and tips from Ashbourne tutors to my final year of my law degree

If I had to describe Ashbourne in three words it would be welcoming, intimate, and fun. I have never met such an eclectic group of people who all get on and are integrated with each other so well. It’s a great opportunity to get the grades that you want alongside gaining confidence and maturity
