Dear Parents and Carers,
Dv8 SMT have taken the difficult decision today that we will close both the Bexhill and Brighton campus to staff and students from Wednesday 18th March. This decision has been taken due to severe staff shortages, rapidly falling student numbers and to protect the college community from unnecessary potential exposure to Covid 19. We will aim to return to college on Tuesday 21st April, the first day of term after the Easter break, (staff inset day on Monday 20th).
From Monday 23rd March all lessons will be delivered on-line and learning and assessment materials will be available to via the existing Google classroom system. More information on how to access on line lessons will be available on the Dv8 website from end of day on Friday 19th. Students will be kept on track with their assessed work and we will take the exam board advice regarding GCSEs as things develop.
We hope that this decision does not cause too much disruption for our families and we are committed to doing all that we can to support students ongoing learning and achievement in their qualifications. Any students who do not have access to a laptop or computer / tablet families are urged to contact Dv8 so that we can address this need.
Staff will be available to be contacted via email, or on the Dv8 mobile numbers: Bexhill 07759 254056 Brighton 07384321153.
