Covid-19

We will follow UK Government guidance with regard to safety measures in the classroom. However, regardless of any restrictions in place, we will encourage social-distancing, implement regular thorough cleaning, hand sanitiser will be provided, and classrooms will be well ventilated. 

Our homestay hosts will provide a safe, comfortable and friendly place to stay.  If you test positive for covid-19, you will self-isolate at your homestay or private accommodation (if applicable).

Our priority is to do our best to keep our students safe. As a result there may be times when we may not be able to offer our traditional social programme.

Please see our Covid-19 Guidelines, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Please always check your own country's travel regulations about entering and departing England.
