Following the announcement on 18 March 2020 for there to be a partial closure of the school, this area has been created to support home learning.
There is an expectation that pupils who are not attending school should complete work set by their teachers. This work is set on ClassCharts and also distributed by email to the pupils' Office365 email account. Pupil can access their emails using the Office365 link below.
The format for emails is [pupilusername]@lancasterhigh.lancs.sch.uk (Yrs7-9, and 11) and [pupilusername]@lancasterhigh.uk (Year 10 only). e.g email@example.com

NEW 06/05/2020 - A Message from Our Lady's Catholic College Sixth Form to all Year 11 Applicants from CLHS
Hello Year 11 students
It must be a very strange time for all of you to find that you are no longer taking your GCSE examinations. Some of you will be feeling relieved but possibly anxious over whether you will receive the grades you deserve. Others may be feeling that all the work you did leading up to the exams was a waste of time. However, learning is a lifelong process and you will have gained skills and knowledge which you will use in the future, without even realising it.
We hope that you are looking forward to starting at Our Lady's Sixth Form in September. We will keep you updated with information on our Taster Day, which was scheduled for later this term. We will be holding induction interviews at the end of August, after you have received your GCSE results. These interviews are informal and will provide you with guidance about which pathways and subjects to embark on. Remember, you don't have to stick to the options you chose when you applied.
In the absence of your GCSE examinations and the embedding of your subjects, we feel that it is appropriate for students to complete what we are calling 'Bridging Work'. Each of our subject leaders has created a study pack of bridging work which we would like you to complete over the next 3 months. This work will greatly help your transition from KS4 into KS5. It will also give you a 'feel' for the type of work which you will be doing in each subject. We would like you to produce a folder of work for each of the 3 or 4 subjects you have opted to study and we would like you to bring this work along to your induction interview in August.
In Sixth Form you will be expected to work independently in your study periods and at home. This is a great opportunity to start developing those skills. I have included a presentation about Independent Study Skills which may help you to start thinking about this aspect of learning.
All of the study packs and the Study Skills presentation are included on our school web-site in the Sixth Form Section or you can use this link:
We are really looking forward to meeting you all in September. Please do not hesitate to contact me on this email if you would like any further information.
Head of Sixth Form
