ST ALBANS — Following the incident last Friday, we are pleased to say that the college plans to reopen the Discovery Centre for both Art, Fashion & Design and our Springfield students on Monday 17 June. The areas damaged by the fire have been cleared, secured and partitioned to ensure that they cannot be accessed. The Sports Hall side of the building remains closed.

The College has tested and recommissioned the fire alarm system and the refuge call point points throughout the building and this includes emergency lighting. Electricity power and lighting has been restored tested and certified. The lift has also been tested and recommissioned. Appropriate access and exit points have been checked and the fire risk assessment has been updated and reviewed by our external fire assessor following the incident.

We look forward to seeing you back on Monday.
