Dear Students,

We will be suspending lessons because of national industrial action on Thursday 27th February in a continuation of the dispute with the Secretary of State for Education over sixth form college funding levels. This is a national dispute and strike action will be taking place at 34 sixth form colleges across the country.

BHASVIC will be open for staff who are not on strike and for students who wish to use the Library. The Main Hall and some other study spaces will also be available. The Canteen will be open for snacks but other rooms and facilities are likely to be closed.

All Evening Languages classes will continue as scheduled, as will planned Oxbridge trips and the performance of ‘The It’ on Thursday 27th February.

Please note the future strike date which is planned for Tuesday 10th March.

Yours sincerely,

William Baldwin
