our quarantine and settling-in programme, operated by Cambridge Melchior College

Cambridge Melchior College

Bright World and Cambridge Melchior College are joining forces in August and September 2020 to offer a safe and secure quarantine facility for our arriving boarding school students. The programme is available exclusively to Bright World Guardianships students. If the UK government's 14 day quarantine rules are still in place then we are ready to help. Our programme has been carefully thought out to offer students a pleasant experience in safe and secure surroundings. We will be upholding Government Guidance as it is updated throughout the programme.

social distancing and safety measures in place
