Timetable for 2020/21
We have made plans for all students to return to college full-time from 7 September 2020. To achieve this safely in accordance with government guidance, we have had to prepare a new timetable. This new timetable will entail staggered starts and finishes for each year group. Whilst we are trying to ensure delivery of our core qualifications can happen on site, we are currently planning to deliver tutorial sessions online. PTs will conduct one-to-one meetings at college in their new office accommodation in Dr Johnson House. You will notice other changes, too. For example, year 12 and year 13 will have separate study, social/eating spaces and each year group will have their own entrance/exit to college. We will continue to implement and adhere to necessary control measures such as hand sanitizing stations and a strict cleaning regime. All of the detail, including your timetable and guidance notes for students will be sent to you by email in August.
Start of term - 2020/2021
Term will begin on Monday 7 September. For exact start and finish times, please refer to the timetable we will email to you in August.
Travel to college
College transport will be operating from 7 September and further details will be sent in due course. Please be aware that all students using public or college transport will be required to wear face coverings.
Key principles to achieve a safe return to campus
The health, welfare and safety of all members of the college community are of paramount importance; therefore, it is important to acknowledge that these return plans do not constitute ‘business as usual’. The information set out below reads like a list of rules; although this is not our normal approach at King Ed’s, we have had to establish a strict protocol for returning to college because of the virus. We aim to ensure our return is achieved safely, with the welfare of all members of the college community driving the guidelines detailed below. Please take the time to read this important information. We thank you in advance for your co-operation in following these guidelines:
