All sixth formers at Victoria College have been sent home following a confirmed case of coronavirus.

The affected student is isolating with the rest of their household and following public health guidance. 

All other students will remain at home until direct contacts of the confirmed case have been identified.

The college has contacted parents with the relevant information and will remain open following advice from Environmental and Public Health. We are committed to supporting our students who have been impacted by the pandemic. Students who have to be at home due to Public Health guidelines will continue to receive school work online so that they can continue with their education.
