The College is only open to our most vulnerable students (including those on EHCPs, or who are in care or have a social worker) and the children of key workers. All lessons will continue to run virtually for all students. The College opens at 9am. Please notify us before 10.30am if you wish to access the College past 12 noon so we can ensure facilities and access are available. The government has published a letter explaining how the summer grades will be calculated. The letter has been emailed to you and a link is in the news section of this website.

The Lean-on-Me team from Herefordshire Vennture has won the National Crimebeat award. A group of volunteers under the age of 25 attended the ceremony in London to collect this national award.

The award recognises their contribution to reducing crime in Hereford by providing this safe place. The High Sheriff and Mayor of Hereford were both in attendance at the award and support the scheme.

High Sheriff Bill Jackson said, "This is an incredible scheme and the students have been recognised nationally for their hard work".

Lean-on-Me provides a safe place in the centre of Hereford that is open every Saturday night to care for vulnerable individuals. The shifts are covered by a group of volunteers who are extensively trained in first aid, communication skills and Lean-on-Me protocols. The volunteers assess and supervise the recovery of intoxicated individuals to keep them safe and out of A&E.
