Following the latest Government announcement on 23rd March, Brooklands College will be completely closing both campuses and there will be no access for staff and students. We have already moved our learning online to ensure all students maintain their education by remote means. This is being delivered via Google Classroom with support and regular communications from tutors.
Stay safe and we will continue updating via this page.
Update: 20th March 2020
We can confirm that in line with Government guidance, there will be no access to the College site for the majority of our students from Monday 23 March as children and young people should be at home during this national closure period.
Government guidance is clear that if at all possible children should be at home during this national closure period. However, for those parents working in critical sectors who cannot keep their children safe at home, education provision for those children will be prioritised. Should parents/carers believe they are in this category, students may be able to access the Weybridge campus by prior arrangement during term time and should email email@example.com (available from the 21st March) should they wish to do so. Both the Ashford campuses will be closed during this period.

Update: 19th March 2020
Following the Government announcement on the 18th March 2020, that schools and colleges should close amid the Coronavirus outbreak, Brooklands College will be closed to on-site learning for the majority of students from Friday 20th March. We have already taken measures to protect students’ ongoing learning during any closure period and are also looking at ways we can support our more vulnerable students during this time. Further details will follow.
We have been planning for this eventuality and can now implement our online learning strategy to ensure all students maintain their learning by remote means over the coming weeks. This will be delivered via Google Classroom with support and regular communications from tutors.
The College advises staff and students to continue to observe best practice in protecting themselves from novel coronavirus, and in limiting the possibility of spreading infection:
