A police firearms drill will put Bicton College into lockdown later this month.
The college has confirmed firearms officers will be acting out scenarios where police will search for a potential intruder and detain them on Monday, November 18.
On the day, students will be supported to get to a safe place until they have been given the all clear by police and staff.
During the lockdown people will be temporarily prevented from entering or leaving a restricted area of the building.
A spokesman from the college said: "This is part of the study programme that we offer to all students, as part of raising their awareness of how to respond to an unplanned incident."
