Covid safety before and during Christmas: What you need to know and do

The last day of face-to-face learning on campus will be on the 17 December. You will be set project work or online learning on Friday 18 December, so you will not need to come into college on this day unless you have an examination.

If you have any questions about your lessons this week, please speak to your tutors in the first instance.

As we approach the festive break, we ask all students to stay vigilant over the holidays. If you’re feeling unwell, you should stay at home and get tested if your symptoms suggest you might have Covid-19.

What do I do if I test positive for Covid-19 during the Christmas break?

If you become symptomatic and then test positive for Covid-19 on or before 24 December, please let us know by calling on 01865 550 401 or emailing

If you become symptomatic or test positive after 24 December, please email

If you are self-isolating at the start of the new term, whether this is because you have developed symptoms, tested positive, or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, please do not attend college until you have finished self-isolating.

Please remember that the new period for self-isolation has now been reduced from 14 days to 10 days.

If you’re in doubt, please email or call 01865 550 401.

We look forward to welcoming you back to college on Tuesday 5 January for the new term where your normal college timetable will resume.

We’d like to remind students to stay vigilant and safe. We hope you have a restful break and a lovely Christmas.


Happy holidays,
