A High Performing Specialist Academy for Technology & Applied Learning

Remote Learning

At Collingwood we recognise that parents and carers want to support the College with the provision that we are able to provide remotely.  We are proud of the provision that we are offering and of the work that our students are completing.

The remote education expectations were updated in December and schools were asked to publish on their website, information for parents on their provision for remote education by 25 January. 

A more detailed account of our provision can be found here: Providing Remote Education - Information for Parents

A summary of our provision is detailed here:
