College Closure — Solihull Sixth Form College

College Closure

Please be aware of the College’s policy in the event of a closure due to inclement weather or heating/mechanical failure.

The College seeks to remain open at all times. Every effort will be made to ensure that external examinations continue in the event of College closure subject to health and safety considerations. Teaching and coaching will continue online in the event of un unexpected closure.

A decision made to close the College will be based on the following criteria:

• essential services are in operation
• access to car park
• public transport is in operation
• decisions taken by Solihull MBC
• health and safety of students and staff

In the event of the need for College closure, a notice on the College website home page (see the purple bar under the main photo), Facebook and Twitter pages will go up. We aim to put up such a notice by 6.30am if possible. If there is no notice up by this time, staff and students should assume that the College is open as normal.

The College’s telephone number (0121 704 2581) will also include a recorded message about any closure.
