Unfortunately the SMB Group (Brooksby Melton College and Stephenson College) has been notified that one employee and one pupil have tested positive for COVID-19.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and we are working closely with Public Health England. 

We are following Government guidance for dealing with this situation and all affected staff and students have been contacted and instructed to isolate as appropriate.

We remain vigilant, with all precautionary measures in place, as the health and wellbeing of our students and staff remain our highest priority, and all Campuses remain open.


The Department for Education (DfE) has launched a helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education.

Staff, parents and students can contact the helpline by telephone and email:

Phone: 0800 046 8687

Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk.

The helpline is open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

You can find the latest information and advice on COVID-19 and the latest guidance for educational settings on the GOV.UK website.
