CLOSURE OF MERCURY AND HAWKING CLASSES AND ST NICHOLAS AT CANTERBURY COLLEGE.

We have had three positive cases of COVID-19 diagnosed over this weekend which affect the 6th Form and the Canterbury Primary Satellite classes.  We are closing both settings for the next 14 days and advise all staff and students concerned to self-isolate. We are seeking further advice and guidance from the Kent Health Protection Unit/Public Health England. 

If any person, that is part of the bubbles, begin to fill ill with any symptoms of Coronavirus – i) a new and enduring cough, 2) at temperature of above 37.8 degrees or 3) a change in the sense of taste or smell – we would advise that you seek a test for the individual involved.

We would remind you that if any staff or students are in a household a person who receives a positive COVID-19 test, please can they inform the school by the COVID-19 telephone line (Stephen King’s work mobile number -  07754749691). 

We will provide you any further updates as soon as we have them.
