Please note that you are now required to wear a face covering in all areas of the College except for in your classroom. Please ensure that you have a face covering before you enter the College. 

If you forget to bring a face covering, a single use face mask can be purchased for £1.50 from the Main Reception in the Skills Park. 
Thank you for your co-operation.

Dear students,

In response to the increase in Covid-19 cases in the last week, we are changing our college-wide approach to face coverings.

From Tuesday 15 September, face coverings MUST be worn by students and staff in communal areas of the college (unless exempt).
This includes:

  • Entrances and reception areas
  • Corridors
  • Catering areas
  • Seating or waiting areas

You do not need to wear a face covering:

  • Within your designated bubble classrooms and workshops
  • Outdoors

We would also like to remind you that everyone is legally required to wear a face covering* on public transport, shops and most other indoor public spaces

 *unless exempt

Please be considerate to students, staff and members of the public.

  • Wash and sanitise your hands regularly
  • Stay within your designated ‘bubble’ areas at all times
  • Wear a face covering when required to do so, in and outside the college
  • Observe social distancing guidelines in and outside the college
  • The college catering facilities for students are ‘Grab-and-go’ only. Please eat and drink within the classroom or outdoor areas.

Thank you!
