We are open and ready to welcome our students in September.

 While our students and staff have embraced new technology and adapted wonderfully to online learning, we are very much looking forward to being back on campus! Health and safety are our priority and we are happy to share with you the measures we have in place. 

We are proud to announce that we have adopted the Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) Covid-Safe Charter, and we are open and ready to welcome your students, in person or online, in September.

In addition, we offer a super flexible plan to accommodate possible travel disruption to students’ travel plans as follows: 

Students who are unable to attend in person in September owing to travel restrictions and visa delays 

We will offer the lessons online until such time as they are able to arrive in person. This means no study time is lost. 

Students who can travel to UK but may be required to 14 day self quarantine

  • We will accommodate these students for up to two weeks before the start of term in our single occupancy ensuite rooms with all meals being provided, under careful supervision of our boarding staff, and in accordance with UK government guidance. 
  • Students will have immediate and direct access to all our support services. 
  • The College will be offering the rooms free of charge during the two week quarantine period, with only supervision, meals and laundry being charged at £295 per week.

Students who are attending classes at the College

  • The Covid-Safe Charter BSA is in place, please see more details below. 
  • At NatMatSci, we have a modern purpose built school campus, which combined with our small class size, allows for ease of social distancing in all areas. 
  • As a small school we can offer the highest level of personal care for our students. Our residence has modern single occupancy ensuite study bedrooms which allow for privacy and safety. 

We can’t wait to welcome you all again to leafy Warwickshire, we are STEM practitioners – we have the science covered!
