Welcome to ballard@home

Whilst this is a very challenging and disconcerting time for all, our guarantee at Ballard is that we will continue to provide a first class education for all our pupils.

Providing that outstanding provision of education remotely was a huge challenge initially; for the School, for our pupils; for our teachers; for all our support and IT staff and most certainly for the parents too. It’s involved a lot of hard work, from everyone. We are therefore delighted to see that ballard@home has become a seamless extension of School and pupils are excelling.

Using a number of different platforms and software programmes, we continue to provide every section of the School with their own bespoke and individualised study programme. Teachers are communicating with and teaching our young people in a number of different ways and work is uploaded so pupils are able to receive their all-important feedback.

We are delighted that a number of year groups are now allowed back into School. For More information on COVID-19 please click here.

We love receiving your weekly updates and wonderful photos and we are grateful for all of your positive feedback.  Please keep sending your stories and photos to


It really has felt like the teachers are leading things and it is lovely to hear the children chatting as they work online with the teacher’s support in the background. It’s a massive relief to feel my daughter can continue her education, supported by her dedicated teachers.

Thank you all once again for your dedication and hard work. It’s truly amazing how everyone is pulling together at this time. My son told me this morning that he feels that everything is going well for him so far. It’s giving him structure to his day, keeping him focussed and helps him to still very much feel part of the school, so a huge thank you again from all of us!
