On Thursday 14 January, our IT team detected unusual activity on part of our servers and immediately took the precautionary step to shut down our IT network. Following an investigation, it has been confirmed the unusual activity was a result of a cyber incident.
Rest assured, the vast majority of our students and teachers were able to progress with remote learning as normal.
Bridgwater & Taunton College takes all matters related to cyber security extremely seriously. We’re sorry that this caused some disruption to our students and staff, and we’re very grateful for the resilience and perseverance everyone demonstrated.
