Year 8

Welcome to the Home Learning page of the Corpus Christi Catholic High School website.

This is your access point to all of your home learning resources for use during periods of self-isolation, lockdown or for digital homework tasks.

Should you, your class or the school have to close and you are working at home, you will follow your normal school timetable.

Work will be assigned on TEAMs which is accessed via the link below. The work provided will be either:

  • A video or narrated PowerPoint of teachers explaining and modelling concepts, followed by questions to answer.
  • Self-study sessions where you will work through tasks and activities the teacher has set.
  • A Video Conference, where pupils and teachers can interact, and exchange ideas.

Before engaging in a Video Conference please take time to read and understand our expectations as set out below.
