Dear All,

As a community, we are and have been facing a rapidly changing situation regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. As such, I am writing to update you on how Conservatoire EAST at West Suffolk College has, and is responding.

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the health and well-being of our students and staff has been and will continue to be our highest priority, and I would like to thank our current Staff and Students for their hard work, determination and enthusiasm during this difficult time. We are the only College or School in East Anglia to have successfully produced not only one, but two full-scale outdoor productions this Summer, to public paying audiences. Something myself and my team are exceptionally proud of!

I am ever hopeful that from September 2021 we will be able to continue teaching and learning face to face, in as ‘normal’ circumstances as we can. Please keep you eye on this site for further information, should the situation with the Government’s roadmap change significantly.

For information about equipment lists and Summer Work, please see our pages for new students here.

If you have any queries around the college’s wider response to COVID-19 please refer to the website where the information is available –

Best wishes,

Han Colthorpe
