Remote Learning:

Information and guidance for students on how to access their online resources can be found here.


Keyworker Provision

Currently we have no children of keyworkers or vulnerable children working in school during the closure. We recognise that parents’ situations such as shift patterns can change. If you are interested in provision for your child to be in school please email Sam Church at s.church@baconscollege.co.uk
We believe Southwark are establishing hubs to provide provision over the Easter period. If you may need childcare provision over the Easter period please also email Sam Church.

The school building is closed to visitors apart from the most essential. If there is a reason to visit the College please phone ahead. Pupils will not be able to visit to see staff or collect work.

Students wellbeing and enrichment remain crucial to their development. Resources for students and families on self-care, reading, enrichment and fun activities can be found here.
