Airlines and countries across the world are requesting that travelers get the COVID-19 PCR test. This test works to detect the presence of a COVID-19 infection before symptoms have begun to show and therefore controls the number of infected people traveling and spreading the virus.
Our Home PCR Test is carried out by an expert in the comfort of your own home. All of our staff are fully equipped with the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure you and your loved ones are safe and sound whilst getting tested.
Proof of identity will be required prior to having your sample taken. This can be an ID Card, Passport (required for travel certificate), driver's license, or residents permit. Unfortunately, we will not be able to assist you if you do not have any legal identification on you.

Generally, we get 95% of results back to people in 24 hours however things such as capacity at the laboratory, Royal Mail Delays, and test re-runs can mean results take slightly longer.

Frequently asked questions
Board of Directors
The Advisory Board consists of individuals committed to the school’s mission and vision who have specific expertise relevant to the school. These individuals have provided consultation during the development of the charter application and we anticipate continuing to seek their advice and perspective as the startup process continues. The Advisory Board meets once per quarter (four times per year) to stay engaged with the school’s work, but its primary task is providing periodic consultation to the school’s leaders, board members, and committee members as needed. The Advisory Board also has an important voice during annual development of the unified improvement plan. It is important to note that the advisory board does not have any decision-making authority.
The Finance Committee shall be responsible for oversight of the fiscal matters of Prospect Academy. The Finance Committee is commissioned by and responsible to the Board of Directors. It has responsibility for working with the school leader to create the upcoming fiscal year budget; presenting budget recommendations to the Board; monitoring implementation of the approved budget on a regular basis and recommending proposed budget revisions; recommending to the Board an auditor to perform an annual third-party financial audit; oversight of the annual audit; and recommending to the Board appropriate policies for the management of the school’s assets. The Finance Committee has no decision-making authority; it is a working committee that makes recommendations to the full Board of Directors in order to financial oversight.

The School Accountability Committee (SAC) is commissioned by and responsible to the Prospect Academy Board of Directors. The SAC assumes primary responsibility for working with the school leader to define academic excellence, ensuring that all board members know the charter promises that were made to the community and the authorizer, and devising clear and consistent measures to monitor these goals.
