The College usually welcomes a number of people to our site and we realise that this approach may disappoint or inconvenience some of you. However, we are taking the current situation very seriously and you will appreciate that our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. If you are affected by this approach, please contact the member of staff at the College who you were due to meet and, wherever possible, they will arrange an alternative with you.
As the COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly, if you are due to visit the College and are currently not affected by the guidance above, we would ask that you check this page again immediately prior to your visit in case our position has changed.
We thank you for your understanding of our position.
