The COVID-19 pandemic and our precautions

The welfare of students and staff is very important to us and so we continue to follow Public Health England guidelines to maintain a safe college community.

Travel to the UK

Covid travel restriction for travellers to the UK have been eased in recent months. Please note that you do not need to complete a UK passenger locator form before you travel, take any COVID-19 tests or quarantine when you arrive in England. Please see the UK government website for further advice.

COVID-19 guidance

The Senior Management Group communicates with parents to make them alert of any changes.

  • Government guidance: We follow UK Government and Public Health England guidelines for all aspects of the school provision including Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) and co-curricular activities. As well as these recommendations, common sense and dynamic personal risk assessments are also important in these situations
  • NHS support: We have an excellent relationship with the NHS medical practice on Banbury Road and our college nurse continues to stay in touch with them. Alternatively, students may make a personal decision to purchase private medical health insurance.

We review our COVID-19 pandemic precautions regularly to meet government guidelines. Our precautions continue to minimise the risks within the school environment:

For emergency pastoral or safeguarding concerns please call 07932 724511. Please email reception for any other queries. 

Visitors to the college 

Prospective students: We welcome visits by prospective students (by appointment only) or conduct interviews online.

Alumni: We love to seeing former students, so we are pleased to confirm that we are now able to welcome alumni to the college. However, visits must be booked in advance.

Oxford is one of the leading research centres for the COVID-19 pandemic

We are proud that the academic city of Oxford is at the forefront of research into the COVID-19 pandemic. As well as having one of the best teaching hospitals in the world, the University of Oxford is making a difference on the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccine, antibody testing and contact tracing. It is a privilege to live in this great city.
