Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning Programme

Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning 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 Programme continues to enable our students to carry on their education with as little disruption as possible. All online lessons are 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 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 were also 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 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?
StudentsParentsTeachers
Ashbourne has provided me with the platform, the time and the space to grow intellectually. We are encouraged to read widely and since Ashbourne offers extra curricular critical theory, I have found my subjects being independently stimulated and motivated by cross disciplinary links. Aside from academic growth, Ashbourne has offered me a chance to feel a part of something. The opportunity to be the co-editor of Ashbourne Identity, the college’s student magazine, has given me a sense of responsibility, creative freedom and pride toward Ashbourne’s diversity. From Ashbourne’s Christmas Revue to its annual European trip, the college’s nurturing and collaborative atmosphere will remain a highlight of my time at Ashbourne

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
