Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

As I’m sure you are aware, the UK government has ordered all schools in the UK to close.  This includes private schools and we therefore have no option other than to close The Essential English Centre temporarily and move all lessons online from Monday 23rd March 2020.
At this moment in time, we do not know when we will re-open the physical school. We must follow advice on this.  However, it is our intention to re-open as soon as possible.
Until then, our school will operate online using our bespoke, virtual classroom.  Our teachers are fully trained and are looking forward to seeing their students again on Monday and perhaps new students in the coming weeks.  All current students will be given log-in details ready for their class.
Our lessons will still be excellent!  We will have the same quality teaching and monitoring we always have.
Our administration staff will still be working during this period, however, we will only be able to communicate with you via email.  Our emergency phone will continue to be used for emergencies only.
All students who are currently studying with us have been given an invitation to join the online class. If a student, or the representative of a current student wishes to postpone the course, then please contact us and we will arrange to do so.
The safety and wellbeing of our students is always our top priority and we will ensure those staying in the UK are well cared for.
We will communicate with all students who are booked onto future courses and provide updates soon.
We would like to thank you for your co-operation during this crisis and we are available to answer any questions you have.
For those who know Bairbre and I, you will know that we love our school, we love our students, we love our staff and we love our partners. We have everything in place to get through this difficult time and we are looking forward to continuing to work with you soon.
Thank you for your support. We wish everyone good health.
Jo, Bairbre and The EEC Team x
