  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco or related products (e.g. cigarettes, including e-cigarettes)
  • Illegal drugs
  • Stolen goods
  • Pornographic material of any kind (e.g. tabloid topless pictures and ‘lads mags’ as well as extreme adult material)
  • Fireworks (or any other flammable material)
  • Any other item that may be used to cause injury or commit an offence.
  • Large quantities of money or any valuable items (e.g. jewellery, electronic items, etc).

We take the safety and welfare of our students, staff and visitors very seriously. Any student found to be in possession of any prohibited item will be expelled from the sessions without warning.


  • Students are permitted to bring with them a laptop or tablet device should they wish to use it for educational purposes during their lessons; however, please seek permission from your tutor first.
  • Students may also carry a mobile phone, but this must remain switched off and out of sight at all times during the lesson. For your safety and the safety of other students as well as our staff, we operate a strict policy where mobile phones cannot be used in class. Students who may need to make an emergency telephone call should request permission from the tutor to make the call outside of the class.
