Latest Updates:


Results for GCSE Maths and English November resits will be emailed to your college email address during the morning of January 14th 2021, by our exams team.

For those who sat the November exams and are no longer at the College, these results will be posted out to you on January 14th 2021, to the address held on our system.

Please refrain from telephoning the college for your results as these will not be given over the phone, following GDPR regulations.



Following the Government’s announcement tonight, we can confirm that all SMB Group campuses are now closed and all lessons will continue online until further notice.

We expect that this situation will continue until February, and we’ll keep you updated with regular communication.

Exams scheduled for this week and next week will not take place.

Please stay at home and check your emails and Microsoft Teams account, as your tutors will be in touch to ensure that you are supported to maintain your studies.

We will contact all of our vulnerable learners to ensure they receive support, and details of the organisation of arrangements for free school meals will follow shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to College as soon as possible – but in the meantime stay safe and well.
