We have been following developments and advice regarding COVID-19 very carefully (as we’re sure you all have) and we have made the very difficult decision to close the school immediately from today (Wednesday 18th March) until at least the end of the planned Easter break.
We were hoping to be able to remain open until the planned Easter break as current government / health advice is that schools can remain open, but we must put the health of everyone first. We now have several teachers who are self -isolating and others who are in vulnerable groups and / or have family members who are, so it is not safe or practical for us to continue at this time.
Please be assured that classes will recommence as soon as practical and safe to do so. Fees will obviously be carried over to the next classes we are able to offer so the next pay – day will be pushed back. We do have examinations on hold for June & July – we will postpone these if necessary. We will make a final decision regarding our show (due to be held on 5th July) over the next couple of weeks – it is likely we will have to postpone this also especially as Theatres are all currently closed with no fixed date to re -open.
Finally, and most importantly, we wish you all the very best of health and thank you all for your continued support and understanding at this challenging (understatement?) time. We will stay in touch via email, social media and our website.
Hope to see you all very soon.
Stay safe and in good spirits!
Love & best wishes
