Italy trip 2021 and Germany trip 2021 (Fri 16 Oct 4:20 pm)
Following extensive deliberation, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the Italy and Germany trips in 2021. Please understand this decision was not taken lightly and I do so with a heavy heart knowing that these trips offer a huge learning opportunity and experience for our students, but at this stage of the global pandemic and with so much uncertainty, I feel that it is the right decision for our students and staff. I would like to reassure you that all the monies you have paid so far will be refunded in full and you will receive a letter soon to explain this.

Please find below a quick and easy reference guide for parents and students so that they can easily identify what school work will be provided by the college in the event of a Covid-19 related absence. There is also guidance on how the work will be delivered in different situations (i.e. via remote learning pack, online resources, pre-recorded streamed and live lessons). A copy of this guide can also be found in the REMOTE LEARNING link at the top of the College website welcome page. We hope you find this helpful. If you have any further questions regarding the provision of remote learning work or accessing this work, please don’t hesitate to contact main reception, who will be able to direct your queries and concerns to the correct member of staff.
