UPDATE: Tuesday 17th March 2020

A word from our Principal:

Dear All,

I hope you are keeping well and safe in these uncertain times.

Our key priority is to protect the health of our community and so, following the guidance from the Prime Minister last night, we have decided that this this week’s evening, weekend and day classes are now cancelled.  We will review arrangements for the reopening of our public courses prior to the start of our new term and inform you on the website and by email when we are clear about this information.

The risk to the UK has been raised to high.

In line with advice from Public Health England the Academy is advising that you stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
