COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Capital School is remaining open and all classes are currently continuing as normal. We are clear that our aim is to stay open as long as it is safe and fair for us to do so.

We understand that students, parents and agents will be concerned about the possible impact of the COVID-19 virus on students and their courses of study. Please be assured that we are taking all advised preventative measures to ensure the continuing well-being of all of our students and staff and to minimise any possible disruption to students.

We have introduced some supplementary terms and conditions in light of the developing situation, to help make things easy and flexible for those who have concerns about booking a course. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us for further information.
