Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

SGS PRIDE American Football Academy Keep On Winning

SGS College’s American Football Academy, PRIDE, smashed their first game on the brand-new, purpose-built pitch against Birmingham Lions with an outstanding 56-0 win.

Pride American Football Academy learners were extremely excited to play their first game on the newly designed 4G pitch, which is one of only 3 specific pitches in Europe.

The game kicked off with a great atmosphere due to the new development including elevated filming platforms, music, play by play, raised bleachers and a turn-style entrance giving the true game day stadium experience.

The game had a fast start with both the defence and the offense scoring points early in the first quarter. Player PJ Hudson, secured a pick six for the defence before unfortunately leaving the game early with an injury. The Birmingham side struggled to move the ball against our defence with Daniel Spafford and Feranmi Okunlola picking up interceptions later in the game.

AJ Carr was the quarterbacks favourite target on the day, but Cameron Mills also chipped in with some big plays for score throughout the game. Jeremie Beni, Ovie Bazunu and Dejahne Erskine three of our running backs, found the end zone. The running clock (mercy rule) was enforced from half time.

"What a great result for our first game on this new field. We want to strive to be the best team in the country and now we can play on a field like nowhere else in the country. Despite the 56-0 win we will continue to improve our performance. We have lots of players out and have guys playing out of position, getting those players back in will help us with our continuing performance development."

—Ben Herod, Director of American Football
