COVID-19 Lateral Flow Testing

We encourage staff and students to take part in regular lateral flow testing to help reduce transmission in our community. It is advised that tests are taken twice per week, on a Sunday and a Wednesday. For instructional videos on how to carry out your lateral flow home test kit, please click here. 

Students can collect home testing kits from the LRC. Staff can collect home testing kits from reception. 

If you are 18+ and are in a household, childcare or support bubble with someone who works or is a student at a primary school, secondary school or sixth form college you can order a lateral flow home test kit. Click here to order a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow home test kit.

COVID 19 Support for English and Maths GCSE: 16-19 Tuition Fund – updated September 2021

The college will provide individual and small group (up to 5) support sessions for students who do not yet have Grade 4 in English or Maths GCSE, have an EHCP, or are from areas of economic disadvantage. These sessions will supplement the classroom teaching and enable students to have more personal feedback and help with their preparation for GCSE exams. This support is funded by the Government and is enabling the employment of additional teaching staff.

Students will receive support individually or in small groups (up to 5). Students with English as a second language will be prioritised for support with specialist teachers. If you would like to know more, please contact Steve Dann, Vice Principal, at
