Learning Safely

UPDATE January 2021

Changes to courses starting this term have been communicated to enrolled students via email or telephone where we do not have an email for you.

Sutton College is committed to delivering quality learning safely to all, in line with Government guidance.

We have:
– Taken reasonable steps to implement safe distancing at our sites.
– Restricted class sizes appropriately to adhere to distancing.
– Screens, sanitisers and extra cleaning regimes are all in place and students will be required to wear masks where appropriate.
– These and many other procedures will be put in place to keep students and staff safe at all times.

Please see information posters around the College and see our Essential Information for Coming to Sutton College.

In the event that the College is informed of a member of the College community having a confirmed case of Covid-19 , all those who are affected by this information will be notified. Attendance registers will be used for the purpose of test and trace and information passed on to the NHS if necessary.

Class Delivery Methods

Our new 20/21 programme has been adapted and we have a reduced number of classes running on site, with many classes online for the Autumn term and some a mixture of both. If your course will not take place in class, the method of delivery will be stated in the course title – eg Accounting Level 2 Certificate AAT (Online Course)


Steps including reduced class sizes have been implemented to ensure safe learning on-site at all times.

Online Courses:

These courses will run entirely online , usually through Google classroom. Support is available.
See our Guide to Using Google Classroom

Blended Learning:

These courses are a mixture of online classes plus face-to-face contact with your tutor which could be in a classroom setting.

Flexible Learning:

These courses can be started at any point during the year and are generally studied online.

Whether we see you in an online class or you join us onsite for one of our adjusted programme of classes, we can’t wait to have you back!

Safety is our priority and we have put a large number of protective measures in place to ensure that the College environment is as safe as it possibly can be for you and our staff. These include socially distanced classrooms, limited numbers on site and a one way system.
