To all our Students and Agents – Learning English in Scotland Goes Online!

Due to the unprecedented situation we all face with Covid-19, I want to update you on the continued operation of Glasgow School of English.

The school building will remain closed for the foreseeable future and will only re-open for face-to-face classes when it is safe to do so.

However, the good news is that since Monday 23rd March we have been delivering our classes on-line. Our experienced and dedicated teachers have adapted quickly in difficult circumstances to this sudden change in how we deliver our teaching. As a result students continue to participate in high quality, teacher-led, interactive group classes from home.

Classes continue to be offered at 6 levels from beginner to advanced. Students can enrol on any Monday and study for as many weeks as they wish.

Although the School building is closed we are continuing to work from home to deal in the normal way with enquiries and bookings as well as with telephone enquires

It is a very difficult time for all of us and we wish you and your families well.

Keep safe and warmest regards,

Alison Orr

Director, Glasgow School of English

You can join a class for as long or short as you wish. The minimum booking is for 1 week, but you can sign up for as many as you want and join our other students who are committed to long-term learning.
