Live Lessons

Our pupils have live lessons and classes every day

Here’s a link to a short video showing some of our lessons

Senior School and Sixth Form

  • In the morning, pupils have four half hour subject specific lessons
  • In the afternoon, pupils have subject clinics, one to one teaching and project work

Example timetable

Prep School

Children are taught in a mixture of ‘whole class’ lessons based on the current topic and one to one or paired lessons focussing on Maths and English. Children also receive specialist input from senior school teachers in subjects such as Science, Geography and Drama.

Regular Assemblies

We run daily assemblies.  They are live streamed via Google Meet and provide a focal point for our daily interactions with students.

There are regular features such as a daily address, quote of the day, teacher feature, book reviews and a musical performance.

Here is an example of an assembly hosted by our pupils.

Technology

Stoke College Online is powered by GSuite for Education. Each teacher has their own virtual classroom which has video conferencing, virtual whiteboards and collaboration tools.

We set homework and project assignments through Google Classroom. Each student has their own ‘to do list’ to help them manage their work and deadlines.

Students submit their work online to be marked by teachers, who then mark it in Google Docs and send their feedback to each individual child.

We use exam.net to hold secure online exams for Years 10-13, while the younger students complete their exams in Google Classroom with live video invigilation from our teachers.

We encourage students to get creative with the technology they have, whether it’s creating choreography in TikTok for Drama or using virtual instruments in Music.
