Dear Parent/Guardian,

I wanted to reach out to say a huge thank you for the support you have shown in this unprecedented situation. It is not one which we could have predicted or planned for, but the response from students, parents and colleagues across the college as you have all adapted to the changes and challenges has been fantastic.

We have now reached the end of our first week of remote learning and teaching. Our teaching colleagues have been working hard to deliver effective lessons and our students have continued to engage with us in the most creative ways.

I know that students might be finding it difficult to adapt to this way of working and that’s why your support is so important. Please remind students that they shouldn’t put too much pressure on themselves and that their wellbeing is important. We will also continue to provide as much support as we possibly can throughout this period.

Questions and Updates
Please continue to check our website and social media pages for our most up-to-date information and guidance. There are Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for students on our website to try and answer some of their concerns and we will continue to update these as information becomes available.

In the meantime, I hope that you are all staying safe and well and following government advice and practicing social distancing. We will get through this together.

Best wishes,


Tony Lewin
Principal, Newcastle College
