How do I access the academic results?

During each term, assessments will be undertaken. Results and feedback will be made available directly on the CGA Learning Management System.

For each subject, students are typically required to undertake externally set and marked assessments and these are typically in the form of in-person written exams. These assessments are administered and graded by Edexcel. Timelines and instructions on how to access these results will be provided closer to the time of assessment.

How long does each real-time, live teaching session last?

For Edexcel (Pre-IG, IG, and A-Level):

  • Week-day lessons are 60 minutes.
  • Weekend lessons are 1.5 hours

For US Diploma Classes:

  • One 2-hour lesson plus one hour of Q&A with the teacher per week

For ESOL Classes:

  • Two 1.5 hours lessons per week

For Advanced Placement classes:

  • One 2-hour lesson plus one hour of Q&A with the teacher per week
What if I miss a live class?

All students must attend classes. However, if this is not possible for an acceptable and valid reason, all lessons are recorded and so it is possible for students to access missed classes.

The parent or caregiver should email the subject teacher directly to request access to the recordings.

What should I do if my child is absent?

All student absences should be reported to the Attendance Inbox - attendance@cga.school

The absence notification should include:

  • Full name of the student
  • Reason / explanation for absence
  • Date of absence (with a return date if applicable)
  • Parent / Caregiver name

As a legal requirement, it is essential that the absence notification be provided by the caregiver/parent.

Ideally, the request for leave/absence notification is received prior to the lesson where possible.

As a matter of courtesy please also notify your class teacher of the absence and inquire about the work you have missed and need to catch up on.

As a parent, what support do I need to provide?

All children require their parents and caregivers to take a healthy interest in their studies.

Parents need to ensure their children lead an active and balanced life. Encouraging them to be involved in a number of activities is critical to student wellbeing and all-round development. Students benefit greatly from the sheer enjoyment that participation in a wide range of pursuits provides.

Regular reporting and feedback will support parents to monitor, transparently and easily, their child’s progress in assessments and class learning activities.

To participate in online schooling, parents must ensure their child has reliable, high speed internet access. To participate and interact, students are expected to have their video and audio feed connected throughout all lessons. If your child needs to turn off their video feed due to poor connectivity this will have a major effect on their ability to learn.

Where can I view my child's class timetable?

To view your child’s class timetable, please go to Google Calendar and login with your child’s CGA gmail and password.

Your child and you should have received instructions on how to setup the CGA email in the first Welcome Email from CGA.
