Online Learning: information for parents

Microsoft 365

The use of Teams and all aspects of Microsoft 365 is an integral part of learning at John Whitgift Academy. The use of online learning will continue and develop and so it is important that all students are able to access their learning. Please contact the academy if you need any support with this.  The button below will take students to the Student VLE where they will be able to access all online learning tools needs whilst working at home.


Many subjects will set homework using Assignments on Teams. The homework may be a Forms quiz or a task which you may need to work on and upload. If students are unable to work on an online document like Word, they can take a photograph of their work and email it to their teacher. If students are still unsure about how to use Assignments and Forms, they must speak to their tutor or year manager asap. For many reasons, we are no longer setting homework on paper. 

Maths and science departments will also set homework on Hegarty, Dr Frost, Sparx and GCSEPod.
