We will follow UK Government guidance with regard to safety measures in the classroom. However, regardless of any restrictions in place, we will encourage social-distancing, implement regular thorough cleaning, hand sanitiser will be provided, and classrooms will be well ventilated.
Our homestay hosts will provide a safe, comfortable and friendly place to stay. If you test positive for covid-19, you will self-isolate at your homestay or private accommodation (if applicable).
Our priority is to do our best to keep our students safe. As a result there may be times when we may not be able to offer our traditional social programme.
Please see our Covid-19 Guidelines, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Please always check your own country's travel regulations about entering and departing England.
At Hilderstone College, we apply safeguarding procedures to every aspect of our courses, particularly for those aged Under 18.
All under 18s will get a pastoral tutorial in their first week to ensure the student is aware of what they can and cannot do: pubs, curfews etc. and to ensure that they know who they can approach if they have a question or problem.
Social events have risk assessments that include reference to the supervision and safeguarding of under 18s.
All students are given an ID card which includes the emergency telephone numbers.
Photos of all Under 18s and those considered vulnerable are made available to all staff in a protected manner.
At breaktimes and lunchtimes, there is a staff presence in the communal areas.
Hilderstone College takes the welfare of all its students, staff and partners very seriously.
