Preparing to visit RAD headquarters

RAD headquarters at Battersea Square is open to all students, teachers and visitors with no requirement to book in advance and the RAD Shop is open to all customers. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Before visiting the RAD

We recommend that staff and visitors participate in regular asymptomatic lateral flow testing. But if you have symptoms, please do not travel to the  RAD.

Check with the NHS if you have symptoms.

How to Stay Safe.


Parking is not available on site, unless you are a blue badge holder.

We have increased the number of bike racks available to encourage students to cycle to the building. These are available on a first come, first served basis.

On arrival at RAD headquarters

  • All adult visitors (and staff) will be scanned and your temperature will be taken before you can enter the building. If you have a temperature over 38 degrees, you will be politely asked to leave.
  • There will also be QR codes visible in the main reception for you to scan with the NHS Track and Trace app. We encourage all visitors to use this to help control coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission.
  • We ask you to wear a face covering to enter the building (aged 11 and over) unless you have a valid exemption, in all communal areas and whilst moving around the building. Please note that students will receive guidance on what to expect in studios and in classes from those departments. We are following current DfE guidance as both a Higher Education and Further Education  provider as well as guidance for  Out-of-School settings.
  • Hand sanitiser is available around the building and you are encouraged to use it.

Once inside

  • There is a one-way flow of movement around the building, please follow floor markings and signage to help you navigate your way around.
  • Hand sanitisers will be available throughout the building, and cleaning of all our facilities will be taking place on a regular basis, particularly high contact surfaces.
  • The Canteen has been re-opened to aid circulation and help avoid congregations of people in reception but we ask that you do not stay any longer than necessary.
  • Changing Rooms will remain closed. Toilets are open to the public.
  • The RAD shop is open, operating a one in one out policy. Please allow for enough time to enter the shop. A Click & Collect, and uniform and shoe fitting services are also available. For more detailed information or to place an order, visit the RAD Enterprises website.
  • Our guidelines are continually reviewed in line with government guidance and are therefore subject to change.
