“The College experienced a brief period of lockdown this as police needed to pursue an individual through our grounds,” Mr Bormolini wrote.

“The situation was resolved quickly and the College resumed its usual timetable shortly afterwards.

“Students were all in class and I wish to reassure everyone that has tried to contact the college that things have returned to normal.”

Police said two offenders, a male and a female, were in custody.
