Kip McGrath Education Centre in King's Lynn continue to help students via online tuition

Although the Kip McGrath education centre in Lynn's Norfolk Street is closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, students are getting on with their lessons through online tuition.

Director of the centre, Heather Rugg, said that Kip McGrath first started online services in 2014, so there is a well established system in place for face to face online teaching.

She said: "Most of our students have transitioned to this and are working with the same tutors, the same materials and the same support and feedback they would have in centre – they simply log in at their allocated time and we are there waiting for them. It’s really important for the kids to maintain a routine and to carry on with their learning, they’re loving the online sessions."

At the end of her first online lesson, Ella Gordon, 16, of South Wootton said: "It was really good. I expected it to be much harder, but I got the hang of it really quickly."

Free assessments can also be completed online and can be booked at www.kipmcgrath.co.uk/kings-lynn
