This morning at 7.30 there was an incident at Westminster outside of Parliament where a car crashed into a barrier. The Police were quickly on the scene and the driver of the car was arrested. Please be assured that we were monitoring the situation and all our boarding students were in the college getting ready for breakfast and their morning lessons. Our day students were all quickly accounted for as they arrived. We wanted to write to you as we realise you may be worried if you have heard of the incident in your news. We are always notified of these type of incidents by the local police and the police response is very fast which means we can take appropriate action if necessary.Read More
