On 4 May we were visited by the NHS for a COVID site inspection. This is what they had to say about our facilities:
“The Northern School of Contemporary Dance is maintained to an exceptionally high standard throughout. The school’s facilities team and other staff members have gone above and beyond in their protocols, procedures and risk assessments. This is a well-run school with motivated and friendly staff who are putting the safety of everyone in the school as a priority.
The staff should be highly commended on their efforts here…once a class has finished the floor and the studio is cleaned and disinfected before the next bubble is allowed in. Hand sanitizers, disinfectants and wipes are readily available around the school. The whole school team are making fantastic efforts to keep up to date on the latest protocols and implementing them efficiently across the school.”

A message from NSCD Vice Principal, Darren Carr:
“I would like to take this opportunity to re-assure you and your families that NSCD is doing everything it possibly can to put the safety of our students at the heart of everything we do.
The UK is making tremendous progress with its vaccine programme. It is the UK government’s aim that by September 2021 the majority of the country will have received at least their first dose, and many of those most at risk will have had a second dose, of one of the Covid vaccines. We are working with public health authorities to follow strict guidelines which have already enabled us to open our buildings to students again from 8 March 2021.
It is our plan for the school to be open as usual in September with students and staff continuing to work together to ensure that all who enter the building are safe and comfortable.”
We will be sending out invitations in late May or early June, or once you have accepted your place. The main purpose of this group is to provide a link to UNIPOL, who provide accommodation information, and for you to begin to connect with one another.
Full details about finding accommodation will be provided here from early May 2021.
We anticipate providing an online presentation and Q&A in early/mid June (to be recorded and posted here for those who can’t attend). We plan to follow this with the option to book to attend a House Hunting Event in mid/late June to visit NSCD, speak to UNIPOL and view properties.
In the meantime please visit our accommodation page here for more information.
Current regulations may change prior to your travel so you are advised to consult information provided in your current country of residence and via this link: https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control.
