Covid-19 Testing

NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 Testing for Staff and Students


You may have heard that testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is being rolled out across the country using new, quicker COVID 19 tests known as ‘lateral flow devices’.

Up to a third of people who have coronavirus are asymptomatic. Testing will help to reduce the spread in schools and colleges.

Along with the other protective measures we are taking, testing will allow us to take further measures to help students and staff in college to stay safe and keep learning.

Most of our students are accessing learning remotely at the moment. Testing will only be provided to those students and staff members who are coming into college. Other students and staff will be tested when the current restrictions change and they come back into college.

If you are coming into college you will be asked to give your consent to be tested. You’ll get an email to your college email account. Parents/legal guardians will be asked for consent for students under 16.

You can read more about this testing programme below, and you can read about how we keep your data safe here

If you are taking part in home testing, it is important to upload the result (whatever the outcome) to both the college and NHS Test and Trace. You can find out how to do this with our step by step guide below.
