Summer Courses in 2021

We had hoped that travel restrictions would be relaxed in time for us to run summer courses in July and August this year.

Due to the complexity of the shifting situation and the fact that families need certainty, it is with a heavy heart that all face-to-face summer courses are cancelled for 2021. The welfare of students and staff remains our number one priority.

We are running Summer Online Courses and we are looking forward to welcoming students onto our Spring and Summer Courses in 2022.
