College tours have been put on hold and will commence as soon as it is safe to do so.
Our Admissions Team are committed to supporting you with your transition from school to college and offer tours of the campuses for prospective students and parents.
Keeping you safe
Due to Covid-19 safety restrictions our tours will be limited to six people (including your SCG guide). To ensure this, tickets are limited to a maximum of two visitors per booking.
- Ideally, pupils will attend on their own, but can bring one parent or guardian if necessary.
- If you are making a booking for a school please note that a school staff member will need to tour with each group, so will be required to register as one of the attendees. You can then bring a maximum of four pupils per tour and you will need to make multiple bookings to accommodate your group.
You will be required to complete the Covid-19 questionnaire and return it, 24 hours in advance of your tour. You will be asked to wear a face covering and sanitise your hands on arrival.
