A personal word from Director, Steve King

I do trust that you are safe and well in these strange times. I pray for you as you face inevitable challenges coping with all the pandemic has thrown at us and as you adapt to whatever the future might bring to you and your family.


At Celc we are doing all we can to ride out this storm and hope to re-launch our year-round programmes on 6 April 2021. We plan to make further announcements on the website and social media in due course.

What I can say now is that our fully residential Summer School for juniors (13-16yr-olds) will definitely go ahead in July 2021! We will do all we can to make this the best ever Celc Summer School!

Through the past few months it has been important to me to uphold my personal, and Celc’s historic, ethos & values, no matter what. We have offered vouchers to students who had paid for courses that they could not take, enabling them to return at a date that suits them in the future. I have also refunded all students that requested a refund rather than a voucher, and have refunded all groups. 

As you probably know our accrediting body – The British Council – has very high standards for safety and compliance. You can be assured that when we re-open your welfare will be our highest priority.

If you are interested in joining one of our courses, please do get in touch:

You may want to follow Celc on Facebook or Instagram.

Along with planning for a re-opening in April, we are working on ideas for special programmes for spring and summer 2021, offering our full range of courses from the moment we open.

Do stay safe and well, 

Steve King
