In Partnership with Hull Collegiate, Cicada Antimicrobial Surface Protection Service helped to safeguard the senior school’s community against Covid-19.
Tom Brown, Head of Marketing at Hull Collegiate School explains:
“When pupils came back into school between September and December last year, we had minimal cases with zero transmissions within the building.”
“We have been really pleased with the success of the measures put in place to protect our community of pupils, staff and parents and we recognise that Cicada Antimicrobial Surface Protection Service has been an integral part of that.”
In August 2020, the leadership team at Hull Collegiate School were one of the first schools in the region to commission Cicada Antimicrobial Surface Protection Service to apply Liquid Guard®, the award winning nano coating technology*, which has proven antiviral efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 – the virus causing COVID-19.
Hull Collegiate School is a thriving 3-18 HMC co-educational day school, which aims to support and challenge students within glorious grounds at Tranby Croft in East Yorkshire.
The last 12 months have been particularly challenging within education. Schools were set the mammoth task of transitioning pupils to remote learning and over the summer, schools assessed the risk of bringing pupils back into schools from September within the safest possible environment.
In August before the pupils returned, Cicada Antimicrobial Surface Protection Service applied Liquid Guard®, the award winning nano coating technology, which has proven antiviral efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 – the virus causing COVID-19. The coating was applied across the senior school; on all high-touch surfaces – bannisters, toilets and door handles, in order to minimise the chance of infections transmitting across the school.
Tom Brown continues:
“As a school we are constantly assessing the risk surrounding Covid-19 and as part of that we approached Cicada Antimicrobial Surface Protection Service to treat the senior school.
“To build on that success we asked Cicada to return to treat the whole of the prep school. Not just the high-touch communal areas, but now the classrooms as well. We realise that pupils in the prep school have a different style of learning to those in the senior school and therefore, we want to enhance the safety and protection within each classroom.
