Start of Term – January 2021 (information updated 31/12/2020)

Changes to the start of term – January 2021

Following the recent Government announcements there are further changes to the planned start of term.

The Government have announced that there should be a staggered return to schools/colleges following the Christmas break. This will allow schools/colleges to prepare for facilitating the Covid-19 national testing programme – we will provide more information when we return, when it is hoped we will have received full guidance.

We have identified that students on the following courses should now return to College on Monday 11 January 2021:

  • Year 2 A Level
  • Year 2 Subsidiary Diploma
  • Year 2 BTEC Extended Diploma
  • Level 3 Year 2 CPLD
  • Level 3 City & Guilds Engineering
  • Level 2 Business
  • Level 2 Creative Media
  • Level 2 Health & Social Care

All other students will be working remotely, via Teams, from Tuesday 5 January to Friday 15 January 2021 and will return to normal onsite learning on Monday 18 January 2021.

No GCSE or Functional Skills Maths and English classes will run on site w/c 4 January 2021, these will take place remotely via Teams.

Exams will take place as scheduled and we will be in touch with those students directly.
