The Gibraltar College has introduced the following measures to mitigate the risk of Covid-19, adhering to current Public Health and Department of Education guidelines. The main purpose is to safeguard the health and safety of both students and staff at the Gibraltar College, creating a safe environment for teaching and learning to take place.

  • Individuals with Covid symptoms should not attend College. They must stay home, self-isolate and call 111.
  • Students must wait in the main patio until 5 minutes before their lesson to make sure there is no congregation in enclosed areas outside classes. If it is raining, students are allowed inside the building, in either covered areas or classrooms.
  • Students walk into the building, keeping to social distance, sanitise their hands and are temperature scanned. This is carried out twice daily at different times to make sure all students’ temperature is checked at least once by the end of the week.
  • Evening classes tutors will temperature scan their learners before their lesson.
  • Teachers ensure students use sanitising gel at the start and end of every lesson.
  • Teachers  will ensure classrooms are well ventilated, with windows and doors to be kept open at all times.
  • If the AC is switched on in IT suites because of equipment overheating, everyone in the room must wear a mask. This is compulsory. Anyone without a mask must leave the classroom.
  • Learners must wipe down keyboards / equipment / tools at the end of every lesson to reduce contamination.
  • Learners must bring their own stationery/ equipment to class. Sharing of stationery is not allowed.
  • Teachers will mark work electronically where possible.
  • The College main building follows a one-way system when entering, transitioning and leaving the premises. In the JMH annexe where this is not possible, students walk directly into classes, keeping to the right in the uncovered corridors / stairway.
  • Students must keep to an assigned seating plan for each lesson.

Teachers constantly encourage students to:

  • Wash their hands frequently.
  • Wear a mask, particularly along common areas.
  • Keep to social distancing recommendations.
  • Implement ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it’ strategy.
