They aim to work with the young people as a collective to dream up, co-create and HATCH a plan to help them embrace, nurture and celebrate their wellbeing.

REMINDER: Twice weekly home testing

Thank you for your support in lateral flow testing of students. It has been invaluable in keeping all at the College as safe as possible in these uncertain times. Unfortunately, we are experiencing delays to our latest delivery of the LFD tests. Whilst we await updated information from the government regarding these deliveries, please can I ask you to order new tests using the link below:

Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

There is a small reserve of spare tests held by me in PE1 for students to collect should you be unable to use the link above. I apologise for the inconvenience caused and will endeavour to get tests out to all students as soon as they become available.

Mr Morris
