Coventry pupils are ‘lockdown legends’

Industrious pupils at a Coventry secondary school have been labelled ‘lockdown legends’ after clocking-up thousands of hours of online learning.

The pupils at Eden Girls’ School, Coventry were ranked among the top 10 schools in the country for learning by gcsepod, after completing thousands of lessons through the online platform.

gcsepod is used by one in three secondary schools across the country with around one million pupils having access the platform. The learning platform aims to boost learning by providing additional tuition and assessment which can be accessed by pupils at home.

Between September 2020 and January 2021, hardworking pupils at Eden Girls’ School, Coventry accessed nearly 17,000 lessons. The most popular subject was Biology where lessons were accessed by pupils 2,404 times. Maths came a close second, with pupils logging on to an astounding 2,050 lessons.

Anand Patel, Principal at Eden Girls’ School, Coventry, said he was incredibly proud of pupils who had dedicated themselves to their schoolwork during challenging times.

He said: “The closure of schools to the majority of pupils earlier this month had the potential to cause significant disruption to our pupils’ wellbeing and education.

“But despite this, our pupils have continued to make excellent progress thanks to their own determination and sheer hard work.

“Since the first lockdown, teachers and staff at our school have been working hard to devise online learning systems to support pupils’ education during periods of disruption.

“These systems, however, are meaningless if our pupils choose not engage in their learning.

“We are incredibly proud to have received this recognition from gcsepod. It encapsulates our pupils’ incredible work ethic and their desire to achieve in spite of the challenging situation.

“I am very grateful to our parents and teachers who are supporting pupils with their efforts so that they can continue to flourish in these difficult times.”
