They have been working on three to five lessons a day supported by video lessons from teachers and online resources delivered through Google Classroom.

Helena Romanes School has been using digital learning platforms for over five years and so when lockdown began, students and staff were able to easily adapt the learning environment into a digital one.

“They have adapted brilliantly to a new way of working and I have been hugely proud to lead them through this time.”

He added: “I would like to thank the parents who have worked so hard in supporting the learning during this time
