Important information to keep you on track


It’s important for you to attend all of your lessons and exams to make sure you keep up with your work and get all the support you need to succeed. Don’t forget your progression is dependent on good attendance.

Students with 100% attendance are put into a prize draw for their campus and the winners are rewarded with vouchers.

For all NCC term dates for this academic year, see

To report an absence, see “Reporting Student Absence” on our contacts page, here.

ID Cards

Please remember to keep your College ID visible whenever you are on campus. Keep your lanyard next to your phone so that you don’t forget it! If you do forget your ID, the College will only issue one temporary pass per academic year for free. If another temporary pass is required, you will have to pay a £5 fee with either a debit/credit card or with your mobile phone, because New City College is now cashless.

Covid Absence Guidance

Covid-related sickness absence should be now be reported to the college in the same way as any other sickness absence. You should report your absence through your New City College ProPortal account. There is a ‘notify absence’ tab in the menu under ‘change requests’. Or see ‘Reporting Student Absence’ on our contacts page, here.

National guidance about Covid has been updated. There is no longer a legal requirement to test without symptoms or to isolate.

If you are unwell with Covid symptoms you should not attend college until you are feeling better, as would be the case with other illnesses.

    The well-being of our students and staff is of paramount importance to us. New City College recognises that everyone may need support from time to time with their mental health and well-being.

    We have a range of services for students experiencing mental health difficulties and some support is also available outside of the college day. See our mental health & wellbeing page here.

    If you are struggling with your mental health and would like to speak to someone, please email and one of our specialist advisers will be in touch to make an appointment. Alternatively, if you need support outside of college hours you can access support from Togetherall.

  • Safeguarding

    The safety and security of our students and staff are of paramount importance to us. New City College has a moral duty to promote and safeguard the welfare of its students who are under the age of 18, and vulnerable adults.

    We remain one of the safest colleges in London and the South East. We have full-time safety officers at each campus whose sole task is to keep the site safe and to look out for any possible threats to our students and staff.

    Any student who feels unsafe or who feels there is a threat to their well-being should speak to a member of staff straight away. Information about Safeguarding Officers and how to contact them are visible at each campus. See this page about staying safe at college.
