Due to the latest Gouvernment Anouncment we have no Choice but to suspend all courses till further notice.


As Education is now only permited on-line, except for children of critical workers . We will reschedule your booking as soon as we know more, to a date that suits you as much as we possibly can, or arrange a refund. 


We will get up and running again as soon as we possibly can, for those with bookings I will be in touch when the Covid rate starts to reduce as I do not believe schools will open until such times. For those interested in making new bookings, this will not be possible till our current commitments have been met, but feel free to drop me an email and I will get in touch when we know we have spaces to offer.


Sorry we did not see this coming as on the last lockdown Education was aloud to continue. We look forward welcoming you back as soon as possible.
