Covid-19

We are taking all precautions to act in accordance with public health advice regarding the coronavirus.

 

We are preparing to re-open!

With the UK easing out of lockdown, we are preparing to reopen our doors and welcome students back for face-to-face lessons.

Starting with our adult courses at Bell Cambridge from 3 August 2020 and then Bell London from 1 September 2020, we will be slowly phasing in face-to-face lessons to ensure we reopen responsibly and take extra steps to help keep our students safe.
