Year 10

  • Go4Schools will be the main means by which class teachers will set tasks and help to structure learning. We suggest that students structure their time working at home around their normal school timetable and complete the work that has been set for them on Go4Schools.
  • There are many resources on the Learning Portal, which can be accessed via the school website. The link is at the top right of the screen and students can log in with the username and password that they usually use on the school network. 
  • Students in Year 10 have been issued copies of their set texts for English Literature.
  • The Northgate Maths department has its own website with lots of exam practice questions for GCSE students and screencasts that they can use if they get stuck: https://www.northgatemaths.co.uk/. If you have any problems accessing any of these sites, please email Mr Dawson on: cjd@northgate.suffolk.sch.uk The school has invested in a subscription for Hegarty Maths which provides practice questions and support for developing key skills. This can be found at: www.hegartymaths.com. We also have www.mymaths.co.uk , the login for this is: northgatehs and the password is: area. If you have any problems accessing either of these sites, please email Mr Dawson on: cjd@northgate.suffolk.sch.uk

Student's ‘U’ Drive 

All files and folders which were stored on a student's ‘U’ drive have now been uploaded to their school OneDrive. Their files and folders can now be found in a new folder which we have added to their OneDrive called ‘U_Drive’.
