The UK has vaccinated all high-risk individuals and has invited most UK adults to take the vaccine. We expect everyone over the age of 18 to be vaccinated ahead of the UK Government’s 31st July 2021 target. This means that Covid-19 cases remain low as the country eases its lockdown restrictions. We expect the UK government to make a decision on offering Covid-19 vaccinations to under-18’s shortly.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, all 3 of the Abbey DLD Colleges have remained open, and we have maintained a Covid-19 secure environment through the introduction of additional safety measures. As we return to full capacity, we will continue to ensure the safety of all students and staff by continuing to implement the following safety measures:
Students from amber & red list countries will quarantine in Abbey DLD accommodation. Students will be collected from the airport by a college representative and will quarantine in the college boarding house with other students, those traveling from a red list country will not be placed with students traveling from an amber list country. During quarantine, all students will receive:
Please note whilst in quarantine, cleaning staff are unable to enter a student’s bedroom but will supply fresh linen and towels, and offer a collected laundry service
Our courses are for students between 14-21 years of age.
Abbey DLD – Group of Colleges are fee-paying colleges
