LATEST UPDATE: 27.10.2020
The safety of our learners and staff is always our primary concern, and, with this in mind, we are putting in place remote learning for one-week for all students at Bicton College.
Students have been contacted and are asked not to come onto campus for the week after half term, starting 2 November to 6 November. Residential students have been asked to not return until 8 November.
All teaching will be delivered remotely in that period and instructions will be sent to students detailing how and when to access this.
If you have any general concerns or queries, please contact 0330 123 2523 during office hours. Learners and parents can contact the college in case of an emergency through their designated contact channels.
