Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Bury College is looking forward to welcoming new and returning students to a safe learning environment.

Our staff are on-hand to support our learners through this transitional period and will continue to provide quality teaching and outstanding student support. We will continue to positively respond to public health advice and adapt appropriately to ensure a welcoming and safe learning environment for all.

Due to the on-going uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to welcome students onto campus from September, alterations and changes will be required. Responding to current government guidelines, these changes may temporarily affect how our lessons are delivered as well as the use of our campus facilities and services. In addition, a one way system, social distancing and regular and consistent hand sanitation stations will be in place.
