Covid-19 Safety 

In line with the latest government guidance, measures are in place to ensure good hygiene and protect our students, staff and visitors. The government “expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed areas where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet.” Therefore, while we understand that wearing a face covering is now a personal choice, we are encouraging visitors to wear a face mask in our buildings if you can and to maintain distance from others to protect yourself and those around you. Most importantly, if you or anyone you live with has COVID-19 symptoms, please stay at home.

Thank you for your cooperation.
