National lockdown: Stay at Home

All students must follow the national guidance by moving to online learning immediately, until further notice.

This is except for:

  • Students who are categorised as a vulnerable group (including students in supported learning)
  • Students who are looked after (including ESOL looked after children)
  • Students who have EHCPs
  • Students who have high needs.

Students that fall into any one of these groups have the option to attend lessons on site, and should contact the College to make these arrangements.

All students are expected to study online at home following their normal timetable through Moodle/Google Classroom or other web-based solutions.

We urge students to understand that continuing to study at home during our closure places them in the best possible position to continue with their education when they return to college.
