Kirklees College opens two Covid-19 testing centres ahead of new term


Kirklees College opened two testing centres at its Huddersfield Centre and Pioneer Higher Skills Centre this week for all new and returning 16-18 students.

In order to keep Kirklees College safe in line with government guidance, students will receive an on-site Covid-19 test before the new term starts on Monday 6 September.

The two test centres are based at the Huddersfield Centre in Landings 72 and Pioneer Higher Skills Centre at Starbucks.

To ensure students are tested across all sites, we are asking students who attend Brunel Construction Centre, Taylor Hill Animal Care Centre or Engineering Centre to book their test at the Huddersfield Centre. Students who attend Springfield Sixth Form Centre can book a test at the Pioneer Higher Skills Centre.

Students who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 90 days do not need to book a test but will be required to confirm this to staff at the start of term.

Click HERE to see the location of Huddersfield Centre, please arrive from the canal / Chapel Hill side of the building to access Landings 72.

Click HERE to see the location of Pioneer Higher Skills Centre. Please enter from the back of the building to arrive at Starbucks.

Click HERE to book an appointment for your test. Appointments are running from Wednesday 1 September and are every 15 minutes. Students should arrive on time with a face covering and leave as soon as your test is complete.

Students who are unable to book a test must take a Covid-19 lateral flow test at home or visit a community test centre at either Huddersfield Bus Station (Open weekdays between 9am – 5pm and Saturdays 9am – 4pm) or Batley Town Hall (Open weekdays between 9am – 5pm and Sundays 9am – 4pm) as a minimum requirement.
