Covid-19

As the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic start to ease across the UK, the college is preparing for the academic year ahead, and the planned return of our students. We continue to develop and implement procedures to ensure the safety and welfare of the whole College community, in accordance with government's guidelines and in concert with other colleges and the University.
