A personal word from Director, Steve King

It is with a great deal of relief that we find ourselves moving beyond the worst of the pandemic and learning to live with Covid-19. Here in the UK life feels almost normal once more, although we remain cautious and vigilant.

For those that want to travel to the UK to study, it is so much more straightforward now that all travel, testing and isolation requirements have been removed. It feels a great deal more welcoming and students are returning in increasing number!

We were delighted to be able to run our fully-residential Summer School for juniors in July! It was great to be full with 13-16yr-olds from 18 different nations. It was a wonderful time and such a joy after the difficulties caused by the pandemic.

We are looking towards Celc Summer School 2023 and expect demand to be early and strong. Further details, along with the registration form will be ready quite soon.

I regret to say that our year-round programmes based at our centre in Christchurch will not be re-opening. This was a terribly difficult decision to make and is full of sadness after 44 years of welcoming so many thousands of wonderful students from all over the world.

Celc is now partnering with Bournemouth School of English in a variety of ways. I have personally joined its team and am very confident to recommend it if you are aged 16 – 80 years of age and looking for an English course in a beautiful part of the UK. If you would like to ask me questions about BSE, please use this form.

Wishing you every blessing as we look ahead with faith and confidence, 

Steve King
