28th July 2020

There is no update this week as college is closed. The Principal’s updates will resume next week.

21st July 2020

Carmel moves towards a short period of closure at the end of this week. This is to allow all staff to have a short break after several challenging months. The college will be open again from Monday the 3rd August. We will still be able to receive telephone and email messages/queries, but we may take a little longer to respond. Existing students and those joining us in September will still be able to access work, resources and support online through Carmel Connect.

Free School Meals

The Government has recently announced that it is extending the free school meals funding over the summer holidays which also applies to colleges. For existing students who are eligible, we will start to make the additional ‘one off’ payment of £73 directly to your bank account from the start of August.

For eligible students currently in Year 11, please check with your high school as to how they are managing the summer scheme.


We continue to work with our travel partners planning for September. It is likely that we will be putting on additional services to the Widnes and Warrington areas in the middle of the college day to cover the new timetable. For users of Merseytravel routes, these services are regularly being increased. A good place to check on the current situation re school and college routes is the Merseytravel travel update web page –  https://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/travel-updates/school-services-latest-information/
