Due to the Covid 19 restrictions placed on our establishment, we are currently unable to have visitors in the Centre, unless this is deemed necessary and arranged specifically by appointment.
A mask should be worn at all times, hands sanitised frequently and a social distance maintained. You should not enter the site if you have any Coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has.
Welcome to Tower Learning Centre Independent School. We hope you will enjoy your time at our Centre. Our main priority is to ensure that everyone who visits is aware of their responsibilities towards making sure all young people are safe.
If you are visiting the Centre, you will be required to show some ID to reception staff if you are not known to them as part of our Safeguarding/Child Protection policy. Please have this ready when you arrive.
Visitors and contractors will be given a badge that they should wear and display at all times when on the Centre premises. A full Visitor guide can be downloaded here.
