Crawley College to reopen following incident

28 April 2021

Crawley College will begin a phased reopening to students from tomorrow, Thursday 29 April. The phased reopening will take place between tomorrow and Tuesday 4 May with full details in respect of courses provided at the end of this communication.

The campus has remained closed for the past two days following police investigations into the incident that took place at the college on Monday (26 April). Work is taking place to repair damage which was sustained during the evacuation and subsequent investigations.

We are looking forward to welcoming our students and staff back to the college and would like to reassure everyone that the college is safe and we will be continuing to provide support as we return.

Sussex Police have confirmed that this is being treated as an isolated incident which is not terror-related and nobody else is being sought in connection with the incident. The individual concerned is in police custody and has been charged.

Our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff and we will continue to provide counselling services and work closely with the Neighbourhood Policing Team.

We look forward to welcoming you back and thank you for all of your support.
