Information for University and College Admissions Teams
Richmond Sixth Form College was closed to students from 23rd March to 15 June 2020 due to the Covid-19 restrictions. During this time Y12 students had access to online learning via Google classroom. Most of the lessons involved the sharing of a PowerPoint with assignments attached. Some staff included a voiceover to talk through the PowerPoint and a small number of staff delivered video lessons or live lessons. From the week beginning 15 June, Year 12 students came back to College for one day per week and attended one lesson in each of their subjects face-to-face with a teacher. This consisted of some consolidation of previous learning, some direct teaching and a considerable amount of assessing each student's individual needs. 85% of Y12 students chose to attend their day in College. College re-opened in September and all students were able to attend every day. The internal assessments scheduled for June of Y12 were held in September at the start of Y13. Students did their own preparation for these as staff were keen to get as much face-to-face teaching as possible in case we should experience another lockdown. University application processes were conducted online.
