COVID-19 Support

The welfare and safety of our students and staff is our priority.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 DO NOT attend College, and arrange to take a PCR test as soon as possible. To book a PCR test online. Click here or call the NHS on 119.

You must notify the College if you have symptoms or have arranged for a PCR test for any other reason on our freephone number:

0800 246 1777

or email us on

If you develop symptoms after you have arrived at College speak to the nearest member of staff and remain where you are.  You will be collected by a trained member of staff and given advice about the next steps.

The College strongly encourages all students and other members of our community to take part in the Rapid Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing scheme as this will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 both at College and in the community. 

As we get ready for the start of teaching we expect all students to take three lateral flow tests in the time before your WQE timetable starts. You should take these tests at home on Sunday 29 August, Wednesday 1 September and Sunday 5 September.

We expect you to keep up this home testing routine each Sunday and Wednesday. This is an important part of keeping all the College community safe as well as families and others you have contact with.

To learn more about LFD testing, test results and for advice on self-isolating, see our Frequently Asked Questions, here.
