Adverse Weather Procedures

As the Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for snow across the South East this week, including the Maidenhead area, we wanted to let you know our College procedures in respect of adverse weather.

During snow (or other adverse weather conditions), it is BCA’s policy to remain open when it is deemed safe to do so. However, in the event of extreme conditions, we may make the difficult decision to close our facilities. If this is the case, official announcements will be made pre-7am on the day/s of closure on here as well as on Facebook: @berkshirecollege and our Twitter profile: @BCA_Maidenhead

College closed for students today

The College will be closed for students today (Wednesday 23rd January 2019). We are anticipating transport issues for many of our students who travel some distance and hence we are taking this precaution.

The Estates Team have cleared and gritted all of the roads and main paths across the campus. We fully expect that we will be open for students on Thursday 24th January.

The College will be open today, Wednesday for all staff. As per the Adverse Weather Policy should you wish to take a day of leave today then this should be taken as holiday having been agreed with your manager and booked via Cintra.

Any further updates will be posted here.
