College reopening update - a message from Kelvin Nash.

I am sure you will all have many questions regarding the reopening of Kendal College from June and for the new academic year in September.

All college staff have been busy in following and implementing the government and Public Health England guidelines, and together we have made the college and the environment as safe as it can be for our returning staff, students and guests.

Since we were asked to close the college at the end of March, we have delivered 1000’s of hours of online learning to all our students. We have also kept the college open for face to face delivery by staff to a small number of students.

As a college we have now taken the decision to increase college access further, and we have opened our doors to a larger number of students who fall into identified categories, and who require additional input to complete their qualification. These students will be invited in to complete exams, assessments or other work where needed, and should only attend when asked to do so. All our other current students should continue their study from home using the online support and content available to them.

Further updates and announcements on further college reopening will be made in due course.

Any comments or questions, please be in touch


Kelvin Nash

At Kendal College, our students, staff and the local community come first. Following the latest government advice, we have closed the college buildings, including all public services, e.g. The Restaurant and The Retreat to the majority of staff and students until further notice.

We are, however, still here for you. College staff are working remotely and are continuing to teach and support our students. The FAQs below set out our current plans, which we will continue to review as the situation develops and we will keep this information updated.

If you have a query that is not answered below, please email, and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

If you're a GCSE or AS/A-Level & worried about your exams, here is a copy of a letter from Ofqual (the exams regulator) explaining what will be happening.

If you have any concerns about yours or anyone else's health concerning Coronavirus, please follow government advice. Further information regarding Coronavirus can be found on the NHS England website.

Stay safe & best wishes,


We've divided our FAQs into 4 different areas, depending on your relationship with the college:
