Torfaen Learning Zone

COVID-19 Update

Torfaen Learning Zone has made good progress despite ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 and social distancing regulations, but we’re on track to open for learning on 4th January 2021!

The September term will start in our Pontypool Campus, which will be well-resourced to accommodate all subjects and social distancing measures, and we’ll be providing free transport from Torfaen Learning Zone to Pontypool campus during this time.

Take a look at your journey from Pontypool campus to Torfaen Learning Zone.

In the October term, we’ll be arranging for learners to visit Torfaen Learning Zone, which will be almost ready but still undergoing the final ‘fit out’ of furniture, ICT equipment and testing.

From then on, we’ll do everything to provide a seamless transition to the new campus, with all the necessary support along the way so learners are ready to start on 4th January when Torfaen Learning Zone officially opens its doors for learning.

We look forward to starting the new year in the new campus!
