term dates for web

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are temporarily adjusting our term dates for 2020/21.

This is to stagger the number of students coming into college, create flexibility in the timetable and to support our social distancing measures. Students were given their individual timetable at induction.

We have made changes to the academic year 2020/21 to make some extra weeks available for teaching and assessment by providing a two week Christmas holiday period (18 December - 4 January) with lessons running through May half term.

Term will start w/c 7 September for all students taking GCSE maths and English resits.
