Each boy can email one chosen piece of work to this address (as a photo or a word document) each day between 8.50am and 2.30pm. I will respond to the email with my feedback and corrections. My email can also be used if you need any guidance or assistance with the work.

I thank you for all the work and effort you are putting in with the boys at home. I look forward to corresponding with them over email and supporting them as best I can. 

Take care and stay safe.
