Spring term           1st March, 2021 – 7th  May, 2021

Class Levels

We will have classes at every ability level, from complete beginner to advanced

Class Structure

10 weeks of classes (class length approximately 2 hours)

Class Time

These will be discussed once classes are formulated. Our teachers will strive for the best time fit in order to accommodate class groups.




Classes will be held online (Due to current COVID situation). We recommend the use of Zoom, but can consider other software if needed.


The registration/enrolment process is hosted by the University itself (rather than our CI) . As many of you are aware this system sometimes is a little clanky, and we appreciate your flexibility and patience. You will not have to enroll in person and collect a card. However online enrolment will need to be complete (apologies if you have done this already before, as it currently stands there is no work around, although we continue to strive for one)

Next steps?

 Get your applications in ASAP, as spaces are filling up quicker than normal with being online !


Following the guidance of the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England, and the Government announcement  to stop non-essential contact with others and to work from home where possible, we have decided that all our classes and activities will be suspended with immediate effect.

Our sincere thanks for your understanding and patience as we all face this considerable challenge.

To complement our updates, please actively check and follow Government advice which includes guidance to protect yourself and about travel.
