Will COVID-19 testing take place for staff or students?
If required by government or Benenden School, we will conduct routine tests. We will advise parents/carers as soon as we
have this information confirmed, shortly before the start of your course.
Will students be required to wear face masks while on the site?
If required by government or Benenden School, we will request masks or face coverings are worn unless there is evidence of
exemption. If face coverings are not mandatory, students may wear them if they feel more comfortable in doing so.
I would like to wait until I know more about the COVID situation this summer before I apply. When is the latest we can
apply for a course?
We believe the courses will be extremely popular this year so we strongly recommend you apply as soon as possible to
secure your place. Full refunds will be given if we must cancel due to COVID, so you will not be at any financial disadvantage
by making an early application.
Will students be allowed to share rooms?
At the time of writing, government guidance on residential courses has not yet been published. The accommodation houses
at Benenden that we are likely to occupy are made of individual rooms although this has not been confirmed. We will inform
parents/carers of the situation as soon as this is confirmed.
Will the end of course concerts go ahead as usual?
We are planning for or celebratory end-of-course concerts to go ahead as usual on the final day of each course.
Will sports and/or swimming facilities be available to use during the course?
We hope that these activities will be permitted during the Summer School. If so, time will be scheduled for use of the leisure
