Latest COVID-19 advice for the summer term

10 April, 2021

Important update

As the UK government begins to implement its COVID-19 roadmap, we all have a part to play and our individual actions continue to be extremely important in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

When you arrive at College for the summer term, it is important that you take your COVID-19 home tests. Please ensure that they are completed the day before you are due to arrive, and log your results.

COVID-19 Testing at the College

In order to ensure the College remains a safe environment for everyone, we ask that all students and staff continue to take part in our COVID-19 testing.

The College will provide students with two COVID-19 tests a week to take home and use. These tests will be lateral flow tests; they are easy to use and give results in 30 minutes. 

In the unfortunate event that you test positive for COVID-19, it is important that you let us know immediately.

Please visit our dedicated COVID-19 testing page for more information about how testing and reporting will work at the College:


We are reminding our students and staff that it is important that everyone continues to follow the government’s guidelines to ensure the College and wider community are safe for everyone. This includes maintaining social distancing and wearing face coverings where applicable.
