Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information & Guidance

Ascent schools are all currently open to families of key workers and our most vulnerable young people. For those children not coming in to school, we are providing a range of learning activities on line or through learning packs. Our leadership teams and tutors will be in contact with families over the coming week to ensure all is well-please don’t hesitate to ask if you need support with anything.
