Covid restrictions lifting in England

The UK government has announced that all Covid restrictions will be lifted in England from April 2022.

We will take every step necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone during our courses. The countryside campus at Port Regis is spacious and private with excellent facilities, and we are confident that we will be able to run a safe and enjoyable course this summer.

We will continue to keep you informed and offer a money-back guarantee if your child is unable to travel due to Covid.

Thank you to the Greeks, first of all, for their alphabet from which the Covid-19 variants get their name. Places and names of people are sensibly avoided, so we now find ourselves at Omicron. The world is on high alert and so perhaps understandably overreacts to new variants. First reports on Omicron suggest that although more transmissible it is also probably less harmful than previous variants. Covid is the virus that keeps surprising, however, so while we remain hopeful we also remain vigilant. 

It is worth bearing in mind that all previous variants of Covid have proved to be generally not dangerous for normally healthy children. We think the low risk is outweighed by the general educational and social benefits of attending our summer course. The spacious, countryside campus at Port Regis is about as safe an academic environment as one is likely to find. The school’s Covid-safe operations have been well tested and we are confident of being able to run a well-regulated, safe summer course for all our pupils and staff.

We offer a money-back guarantee if your child is unable to attend ECS due to travel restrictions in your country or The UK - see https://www.countryschools.co.uk/more-info/terms-and-conditions - so you can book now in confidence.
