“Eton College is offering free self-study courses to teenagers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The world-famous private school said its headmaster, Simon Henderson, wrote to the heads of secondary schools offering access to its online learning platform, EtonX.”
“The EtonX courses will initially be for Year 11 and Year 13 students, those who were due to take their GCSEs and A-levels, or equivalent qualifications to help “as they consider their next steps”, Eton said.”
“At a time when schools across the UK are closed and adapting to digital learning, it is more important than ever that all in education work in partnership for the benefit of young people.
“EtonX self-study courses are specifically designed to be delivered 100 per cent online and include a full range of engaging learning materials, with a personal action plan and end of course assessment for each learner.”
