Sir William Borlase's Grammar School

The 2021 lockdown

In January 2021 schools once again went into lockdown as cases of COVID 19 soared.  The experience of the 2020 lockdown meant that we were able to move immediately into our Borlase@Home virtual school.

As well as a continuity of teaching and learning, this second lockdown saw further development of our online community work, including virtual meetings of academic clubs and societies and a hugely successful "Do Something Different" day.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the work that must have gone into organising the #do something different day! I decided to take a day's holiday from work, so I could be there and make it a family day too.   When we found out it was recorded rather than all live demos we were able to adjust the day to suit and packed so much in!
