Corona virus – Pandemic adapted curriculum and next steps

The cancellation of GCSE and A Level exams in the summer and the current lockdown situation has been a challenge. However, we believe every challenge is an opportunity at Battle Abbey School. These changes have enabled us to launch a pre-Sixth offering to our Year 11 students and a pre-university programme for the Upper Sixth. These are an extension of ‘Virtually Battle’, whereby the first class curriculum and pastoral care continues to operate albeit digitally. The pre-Sixth and pre-University programmes will enrich students academically, broaden their horizons and prepare them for their next steps.
