Covid-19 Update 5th January 2021
On 4th January the UK government announced a new national lockdown in England from today. This includes closing all primary and secondary schools until February half term (until 14th February).
Although private English language schools like Lexis are not under the direct control of the Department for Education, we follow the guidance given by English UK (the national association of accredited English language centres in the UK) and we fully support the government’s decision to close schools to minimise the spread of Covid.
As a result and in line with the UK government guidelines, we are temporarily moving all our classes classes online, with the same number of lessons per week as in school. If students do not wish to transfer to online courses, they will be offered a credit note valid for two years from the course start date.
Not all news is bad news! As you know the UK Government is carrying out a massive vaccination programme and we hope that this will enable the world to return back to normality. In fact, we are counting on it!
However, our school office remains open Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. If you have any questions you would like to discuss, call the office on +44 208 346 9802 or request a Zoom call by emailing on firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here for you.
Here at Lexis our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff members. We will therefore continue to monitor the situation and act in accordance with advice from the government and English UK and will post further updates as necessary.
