The safety of our staff and students remains our top priority, and we continue to follow all government guidelines. We are committed to supporting our students to achieve and progress.

Over the last year the restrictions have been eased significantly and this is reflected in our guidance below. 

Face coverings
Face coverings are no longer mandatory and are not required to be worn while on site. The College supports any staff, student or visitor who choose to continue to wear face coverings. 

The College encourages anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms to test regularly while they have symptoms. If you test positive you should contact the College for further advice before attending site.  

All eligible staff and students are encouraged to take up the offer of the vaccine, including boosters.

Vaccines are our best defence against COVID-19. They help protect young people and adults, and benefit those around them. Vaccination makes people less likely to catch the virus and less likely to pass it on. To book a vaccine, please visit: Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination – NHS (

Good hygiene
Everyone in College should continue to follow the basic rules of good hygiene. This will help to protect individuals and others from COVID-19. These are:

  • washing your hands
  • cleaning your surroundings
  • covering your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze.

If you have any questions with regards COVID-19, please feel free to contact the College on 01226 776000
