Travel and arrangements regarding entry to the UK require planning and careful attention to detail regarding testing and information provided.  Please consult the latest government advice to ensure compliance in these areas, please click HERE for a link to the government website.

To highlight key points, the UK Government requires that boarding school pupils who have arrived from countries on the Red and Amber lists (or that have travelled through a Red or Amber country in the 10 days prior to arrival) to take the following steps prior to travel;

  • Take the required Coronavirus (Covid-19) test and get a negative result during the three days before they travel;
  • Book and pay for a travel test package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on day 2 and day 8 of their quarantine, (Recommended testing companies: DNA Workplace, National Pathology Limited, CTM (NHS T&T) Randox Health). Please note, the CTM (NHS T&T) is the only permissible testing pack for arrivals from Red List countries;
  • Complete a passenger locator form before arrival, with details of where they will quarantine when they arrive and the travel test package booking reference number. Please note the School contact is Miss Charlotte Britton.

Please note separate information will be forwarded to those pupils arriving from Red List countries to present to UK Boarder Force on arrival into England.
