It's important that we continue to test regularly to ensure that you and other members of the College remain safe. 


You can collect your tests every week day between 10:00 - 14:00 from Room 123 in The Street. If you are unable to collect them during this time, please arrange to collect them from your tutor.


  • Read the Notice (COVID Testing)
  • Take 2 tests every week if you are attending College more than once a week
    (If you are only attending once a week, you only need to take one test the day before you come in)
  • Try to take the test first thing in the morning or last thing at night - before brushing your teeth
  • Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes before taking the test
  • Follow the instructions in the booklet provided (not the one in the box - it's slightly different)
  • Continue to test over the Easter holidays
  • If other members of your household require tests, please visit the West Berkshire website

For more information on home testing please visit COVID-19 Self Test Help


  • Report your results (either positive or negative) to the NHS gov.uk/report-covid19-result
  • Report your results to your tutor (either positive or negative) 
    (if you are unable to attend college, please report your results by email and follow the usual attendance procedure)


  • If there is an issue with your test kit, please report this by calling 119
  • More information on home testing can be found on the government website
  • If you have any more questions, please contact us
