Our response to Coronavirus

Our response to Coronavirus

In light of the Government’s announcement to close Schools and Colleges, the College campuses will be closed from 16.30 on Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice. 

However, we are adopting a virtual and distance learning approach for students; which staff have been preparing for and are ready to support students remotely. With the wellbeing of our students and staff in mind, continuity at this time is essential and at West Suffolk College we will be operating as normal - just not from the college campuses. If students have upcoming exams or synoptic assessments, please do not worry, we will keep students updated once we have any information.
