Let’s enjoy a great year together – safely

20 August, 2021 10:55 am

An exciting new academic year at Harrogate College is almost upon us and preparations are underway to ensure we can all enjoy it and succeed together.

A vital part of that will depend, as efforts continue to contain the pandemic, on as many students and staff as possible being vaccinated against Covid-19. 

The government is now offering walk-in vaccinations to 16 and 17 year olds and we would strongly encourage students to have a vaccination before starting their studies with us in September.

Keeping safe and having fun

Doing so, and following our Covid safety measures – which include continuing, for now, to wear face coverings in corridors and open spaces, or where distancing can’t be maintained – will help us all stay safe.

That will mean students will have the best possible chance of excelling in their courses and taking the vital next step towards the career or academic path of their choice.

It will also mean that everyone can feel confident as they try out the many rewarding and fun events we will have going on, during induction week and beyond.

If you’re 18 years old or over, you can book a vaccination here

When term starts, students will need to take two Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests each week (like they did before the summer break) and to record their results via the Gov.uk website.
