COVID-19 Testing

Bournemouth & Poole College will be launching COVID-19 testing for students and staff

Following the Government’s announcement earlier this week, we are delighted to confirm that the College will be reopening on Monday 8th March and we’ll be welcoming all students back to college from this date.

COVID-19 testing at the College

In order to ensure the College remains a safe environment for everyone, we are introducing COVID-19 testing for students and staff.

Students and staff will be provided with COVID-19 tests to take home and use twice a week. 

Important information - registering your test outcome

Every time you do a test, you will need to register the test on two sites

  1. Firstly you will need to register the barcode and the result on the government site. All instructions are provided on the leaflet in the lateral flow test kit. Record the details as soon as you have the result of your test. You will need to do this for each test you carry out.

    Please note when accessing the above website, the College name is The Bournemouth and Poole College (BH14 0LS) which will come up as you start typing.
  2. You will also need to log your results every time you have a test on our College Test Results webpage which can be accessed via the following link:
