Clubs will begin again from Monday 10th January. Students should speak to the named member of staff as per the timetable if they would like further details of any clubs or activities which are running. It is also worth noting that this timetable includes details of revision/support sessions which are taking place for GCSE, BTEC and A-Level students in preparation for examination or assessment this year.

NEW: Lateral flow testing

We would like to thank all parents/carers for their support with the staggered start to this term, which has enabled us to carry out lateral flow testing for each year group and to minimise the potential transmission of Covid-19 as students and staff return to school. Our testing team have carried out over 1200 LFD tests in the last 4 days, and as a consequence, we have been able to identify and isolate 8 asymptomatic positive cases. We are also aware that many families conducted LFD testing at home prior to students returning and we thank you for this. We continue to urge you to continue twice-weekly testing at home and to report results using the NHS website as below.

Don’t forget to record ALL Home-Test results in TWO ways:

1. NHS: https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result

2. Bodmin College: PARENT/STUDENT Covid19 Home Self-Test Result Reporting
