Moving to remote learning should not mean that our pupils and staff feel disconnected or unable to benefit from a full ISS experience. At times like this it is more important than ever to make global friendships and develop international ties, so building a strong and safe community remains a top priority at Sedbergh International Summer School.

What are we doing to help students’ health and wellbeing while learning online?

  • Staff trained in online safety with lessons reinforcing safe online practice
    for students

  • Informal social time for students via remote learning platform
