COVID-19 Secure Measures

We take the safety of our staff and students very seriously. We have changed lots of things in the school to make things as safe as possible! Here is what to expect when you study with us.
 

Smaller Class Sizes

Our maximum class size is now between 3 and 5 students (depending on the room). This is a big reduction from the 12 before lockdown! This means you can be safely 2m from other students and you'll get lots of attention from your teacher, who can really focus on your needs and goals. Even though the class sizes are smaller, our low prices haven't changed!

This is based on the current Scottish Government guidelines to stay 2m apart. Of course, if those change then our class sizes will too.

 

Visors for Teachers

Teachers will wear visors in class for your safety. Your techer will normlly be 2m from you, but they will need to come closer occasionally, such as when checking your work or giving you a handout.

Face Coverings in Common Areas

You'll have to wear a mask or face covering in the stairs, hallway and other common areas. However, you can take it off when you sit down in class if you want.

Changed Class Times

Different classes will start at different times, so you won't meet too many people in the hallways or on the stairs. We'll email you the exact start time for your classes before you start!

Extra cleaning 

We will provide hand sanitiser and we will clean every class before and after. Please sanitise your hands when you enter the school and wash your hands regularly.

Cards not cash 

We will only accept cashless payments to reduce the amount of contact between you and the staff members. You can also pay online from our website.

Appointment-only reception 

Please email us to arrange an appointment if you would like to see reception. Of course, we can also help answer your questions by email or by arranging a Zoom/Skype call!  Please come to your appointment alone. We have suspended our waiting area/kitchen area in order to reduce the number of people in the school at any one time. Therefore we cannot have any family, friends, kids or partners waiting in reception/kitchen.

Kitchen/lounge 

Sorry, but we've suspended our free tea and coffee for now. Please feel free to bring your own drinks (there's a coffee shop across the road from us and a supermarket next door). The kitchen is only open to refill water bottles.

Students with Symptoms

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (a continuous cough, a high temperatue or change in sense of taste/smell), please don't come! Just tell us and we'll pause your course. Alternatively, if you are taking a full-time course, we can replace your classes with some online private classes. Just check our terms and conditions or ask us for more information.
