STATEMENT issued 18/01/2021


King William’s College can confirm that the cluster of positive Covid cases found on the island yesterday (Sunday) involves some of its international boarding students.

A total of 26 students returned to the island on January 4th and have been quarantining in a bubble on the College site ever since. Seven of them tested positive following their test on day 13.

The children are 16 and 17-year-olds who attend the College in order to study the International Baccalaureate in the Sixth Form and many of them have been at the school for many years.

None of the students have shown any symptoms and they remain in good spirits. They continue to join their classmates in ‘virtual’ lessons using Microsoft Teams and, like the rest of the school, are busy following the normal timetable.

The College is working closely with Public Health to manage the situation and to continue to ensure that there is no risk to the wider community.
