ONLINE OR ON CAMPUS - LET'S KEEP LEARNING!

As we prepare for the reopening of our schools, Reddam House students' well-being is of the utmost importance to us. We are committed to protecting the health and safety of each of our students, through our strict protocols that include screening, deep cleaning, and social distancing regulations.

 

Read COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures

 

Careful consideration has been given to students who cannot return to campus. Our online learning programmes will continue to assist them, ensuring no one misses out on a moment of learning.

Bottom slanted line

The Reddam House Atlantic Seaboard Virtual School experience retains two core elements that we believe make us an outstanding school. Firstly, the live student-teacher interaction, which is fundamental to all students making progress and achieving their full potential. Students gain so much from the direct interaction with their classmates and passionate teachers. The second core element is the desire to maintain our personalised learning approach that treats every student as an individual and supports them pastorally and academically at all times.

We believe that the digital environment will develop independent learning and 21st Century skills in all students.

Education is certainly changing and everyone at Reddam House Atlantic Seaboard is keen to be changing with it. We’re all open for learning.

HOW IT WORKS

At Reddam House Atlantic Seaboard, the Virtual School programme will mirror the actual school day as closely as possible, including school timings.
