Covid-19 Update

We are Open!

Last Updated Tuesday 6th July 2021 

 

The government announced yesterday (5th July) that, subject to a final go-ahead on 12th July, COVID restrictions will be lifted in the UK from 19th July. With the success of the vaccination programme, we have managed to control the virus and can now return to normal life. This means that social distancing and mask wearing will no longer be obligatory. This is fantastic news!

The school is now fully open and it is great to hear the sounds of students and teachers in classrooms once again. As the vaccination rollout continues to make great progress in the UK, we are very hopeful that all restrictions will be lifted by 19th July.

 

Whether joining one of our online exchange programmes for young learners, one of our exam preparation courses for IELTS, Cambridge or OET, or studying  General English with us, we are looking forward to welcoming more students face-to-face and online this summer!

Yesterday (22/02/21) the government announced the roadmap for easing lockdown. Boris Johnson was very confident to show his plans to lift all legal limits because of the vaccination programme which is well organised. 

The first step is starting on 8th March when schools can reopen. Outdoor after school sports will also be allowed. Two people will be allowed to sit together outdoors and care home residents will be allowed one visitor. This is the first step- from then on, lifting legal limits little by little, on 21st June we hope to be free from all restrictions.

 So we are delighted to confirm that we will reopen our doors to students on Monday 8th March! We are moving closer and closer to seeing our classrooms filled with teachers and students again J

As the UK restrictions will soon be slowly lifted, it is looking possible that we will be able to welcome back our face-to-face classes from the 8th March 2021. However, our online courses are proving to be very successful and we will continue to offer them in parallel with our face-to-face courses. 

The mass vaccination programme is now successfully being rolled out in the UK and soon, we hope to be back to normal. Keep an eye out for exciting new plans on the horizon- we are preparing various online programmes and continue to work during this pandemic to explore new ideas.

Following the Government’s announcement of another lockdown from the 4th of January, we have moved our classes online. Flying Classrooms remains open for essential work, help and support, and our office staff continue to work following strict COVID safety guidelines.

While 2020 brought many challenges, here at Flying Classrooms in Norwich, UK we have discovered some of the exciting possibilities offered by online platforms as a teaching tool. Our students have continued to learn interactively and internationally, despite travel restrictions. We are proud of our online community, and will continue to offer online courses and face-to-face courses in parallel once the government restrictions allow.

The mass vaccination programme is now being rolled out in the UK and soon, we hope to be back to normal life. Keep an eye out for exciting new plans on the horizon as we are preparing various online programmes. We continue to work during this pandemic to explore new options.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our school.

Best wishes,

Kumi Wiedmann
School Director
