Corona Virus Update – 27 March

In order to keep everyone informed, please find enclosed a summary of the current situation.


Macclesfield Tutorial College is now fully closed, in line with government directives and all our staff are now doing their best to work remotely to ensure the on-going support of our students, exam candidates and other customers.

We are unable to accept telephone calls so please email us at [email protected] if you have any urgent questions or concerns.

MTC Students following full or part time study courses

We are continuing to offer support to all of our students, whether that is the setting and marking of work, or an on-going timetable of online lessons. We will keep you informed of progress with lessons and are striving to maintain existing timetables wherever possible.

Students receiving supporting tuition

If you wish to continue your lessons, please let us know. Depending upon tutor availability, we may be able to offer online lessons. Contact us for more information.

Examination candidates

All summer 2020 GCSE and A Level exams have been cancelled. This is true for each of the UK exam boards and for all centres nationally. All candidates will be able to receive a grade in the subjects for which they have been entered and the government will soon announce full details of the process for calculating a fair and accurate grade for each candidate. We are closely monitoring the situation and expect further updates on this soon. We are also lobbying to ensure that private candidates are taken into account during this process.

Our advice to all candidates at this time is to ensure you have collected as much evidence of prior attainment as you can – past papers and other independently assessed work (Eg. marked by a tutor) which demonstrate candidate ability. It is highly likely that any suggested grade will need to be back up by evidence of ability.

There will also be opportunities for candidates to sit exams early in the next academic year, should they need to.
