Home / Burnley College Covid-19 Statement – UCAS


Burnley College entered lockdown in mid March 2020 along with the rest of the education sector.

The Covid pandemic will have impacted on the teaching and learning of students in this cohort during their GCSE studies, when they were subject to interrupted learning; intermittent access to remote lessons (dependent on their individual providers at this time) and the suspension of formal exams. While lessons have been conducted face-to-face in the College since September 2021, the absence of formal exam experience and protocol has meant that the AS and vocational exams and coursework assessments of summer 2022 were the first to be officially experienced by students since Key Stage 3 (the end of Year 9) in many cases.
