British Values
& Prevent

British Values

British values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain, valuing our community and celebrating the diversity of the UK. We are committed to promoting, celebrating and embodying British Values across all aspects of the College.

These values are: Democracy, Individual Liberty, The Rule of Law and Respect & Tolerance.

Staying safe at College


Your safety and wellbeing is important to us. In past surveys 93% of students agreed that they feel safe at college and we aim to do even better this year. For example, everyone must wear their college lanyard on campus. This goes for students, staff and visitors. Unfortunately, we live in a world where we are seeing an increase in terrorist attacks. We know that people who develop extreme views do so gradually and intervening at an early stage is the best form of prevention. The wellbeing team is always on hand if you’re concerned about anything and the “stay safe” button on your MyDay account is there for you to use in case you need to contact us. Contact details are also printed on the back of your student ID.

If you feel that someone is trying to force their views and opinions on you or you feel confused about something you have seen or read on social media or YouTube for example, please talk to us. We can offer advice and support.

If you are worried about another student then please talk to us in confidence. Help us to keep them and the college community safe.
