Dear Parents / Students

As we are fast approaching the start dates of our Inspirational Summer School which kicks off on the July 4th 2021 I would like to address this. All Courses are running for all dates as displayed timetables on our websites.

A kindly reminder - we have a flexible Booking Policy for all our Summer School Courses contents of which can be seen here :

https://www.literegal.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Lite-Regal-Education-Covid-19-flexible-booking-policy-May-Update.pdf

All Students / Parents coming from overseas are kindly to request the check the UK Entry Procedure and quarantine requirements (if any) when arriving in the UK.

Even if your Country is on the Amber list I would like to  suggest a couple of options available :

1/ The UK Traffic light system for Countries is being updated every 3 weeks - Students are advised to check if their Country is Green, Amber or Red List.

If the Country is on the Green List - this is the ideal situation - there is no need to quarantine for any students arriving from their Green List Country.

If the Country remains on the Amber List many parents are paying a small additional fee to allow their children to quarantine for the days before the course starts.

Yes, if by chance your country remains on the Amber list - many parents are dpaying extra for quarantine and pick up - we will organize the pick up from the airport and bring him / her to the campus accommodation - we also will book accommodation for 5 days extra before his arrival to cater for the "express" quarantine. The PCR test in the UK will be done on day 2 and day 5. If negative on day 5  he / she is free of quarantine.

If you cancel the need for the quarantine 2 weeks before the course start date (if for instance, your country enters the green list) we will fully refund the extra days paid for quarantine - If you also decide to cancel the pickup service we will also refund this if you inform us 2 weeks before the course start date. We are fully flexible about this.

Extra cost as indicated is if you wish to quarantine before the course :

5 days extra accommodation (Full Board + 3 x meals )  = £140 per day x 5 days  = £700

pick up meet at the airport and greet by our school staff and transport by car to accommodate = £80

Total extra to bill = £780

I will ask accounts to send you a fresh invoice for this addition to your original invoice and that it will be refunded if canceled 2 weeks before the course start date.

It will be replaced by the judgment of the teachers based on teacher assessment, coursework, homework, essays, and mock exams. The moment there is a proposal for a series of examinations and test papers given by examination boards but administered and marked by the student's teachers. It is for these reasons that all past and present Lite Regal Students enrolled on this Easter A Level or GCSE Revision Week should attend without disruption to their timetable. The classes will in person at our College ( if the government allows in-person teaching by the dates given) or remotely or both to allow maximum flexibility for those students unable to attend in person this Easter.

A level and GCSE  2021 exams plans:

  • Teachers provide replacement grades for A-levels and GCSEs

Valid from the 10th July 2020 the UK Government has provided "travel Corridors" in which travellers do not need to quarantine and self isolate if they arrive from around 65 Countries to the UK. For the Quarantine Countries Exemption list please look here :

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors

All Overseas Students are also requested to also check the Entry Requirement of their Country before attending any of our Courses.

Page Updated 30th June 2020

From this week the UK Government will relax the rules that forced travellers to quarantine for 2 weeks. The UK will introduce a traffic light system that will enable students and travellers from green and amber light countries to enter the UK without the need for the quarantine.

We are expecting a list of around 50 countries that will be allowed entry to the UK without the need for the quarantine.

Participating countries that are expected include France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Germany, Norway, The Netherlands, Turkey and Finland - but not Portugal. The list of countries will be released on the 1st July 2020 with the lifting of quarantine expected to be implemented from the 6th July 2020.

Any students from outside the UK who travel from countries that are on this list will be able to attend the following courses in London – Engineering Preparation, Advanced Engineering,  Medical Preparation , Advanced Medicine, Law Preparation, all English courses and Business courses – if they wish. All Internships are confirmed to resume from the 6th July. These courses will run in London campus only. As most parents and students have delayed their courses to next year these courses are expected to run in small groups that will allow individual attention to each student. As accommodation restrictions in the UK and the end of restrictions in the hospitality industry  are also removed from the 4th July 2020, students that need accommodation in the London UCL campus will be able to do so as per our information. Students should expect that the courses will run with all the academic rigour and content as that advertised on the course information page. Students should however expect that students’ numbers will be low.

These courses will suit all UK students and overseas students aged 16+ and in particular those who are interested in attending the course for the learning. Leisure activities on the programme will be determined by group sizes, social distancing and availability of open venues.

All prospective students are however advised to seek the travel advise of their particular country in the need to their travel requirements.

I lastly wish all parents and students health and happiness this Summer wherever you chose to be. As we drawn to a close for the 2020 School Academic Calendar - I wish all GCSE and A Level, and IB Students success and acceptance in their chosen University Applications.

Kind Regards

Dear Students and Parents,

Good day to all our students and parents and I hope you and your families are well. I am extremely grateful for the understanding and sympathetic emails received by many of you over the last few weeks given the arduous learning conditions we have all been facing. It is due to the excellent collective behaviour by us all that we have seen our lives slowly returning to normality and the gradual easing of the lockdown. From the 1st June reception years 1- 6 students are returning to school but no indication has been given regarding the return for secondary school students years 7 – 13. We expect these to return in September with the start of the new academic year.

The Government has announced on the 22nd May 2020 that all foreign nationals arriving in the UK will face a 14 day quarantine. Visitors will need to indicate their movements.  Students will be asked to fill in an online form in which to indicate:

1) the specific address where the quarantine will be carried out

2) a telephone number to which travellers can be contacted and

3) the path that will be followed to reach the final destination

Obviously this ruling will make it extremely difficult for any students to attend our summer courses or our short term Internships - Medical, Business or Law Internships with this 2 week quarantine in place as any of our overseas students will need to arrive 2 weeks earlier in the UK prior to their UK intended course or UK Internship dates. Any of our UK students will not be effected by this ruling. To facilitate this we are able to provide accommodation for an additional 2 weeks period prior to the course or internship starting.

We are expecting all our Internships including the Medical Internship to start in mid July 2020 and would encourage any existing students who have postponed their Internships to let us know their intended new dates.

We have also introduced a number of 2 week online courses in Law, Medicine, Engineering, Business for 15-18 year olds that will be suitable for any UK or overseas students that are unable to attend our Summer School and do not wish to postpone the summer school for a later date or simply wish to learn about their subject matter and be prepared before they enter University.

We are expecting the UK to have fully eased the lockdown by the start of July.

Lastly I would like to thank all our staff and students for their full cooperation in these difficult past few months for us all.

Wishing you well.

Dear Parents / Students of Lite Regal Education and Lite Regal International School

I would like to thank all parents and students for their cooperation and continuous support in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic together.

Following my last letter on 2nd April 2020, I would like to congratulate all students and teachers on the successful completion of our A Level & GCSE Easter Revision courses, which was conducted online and remotely. Many of our students who took this Easter Revision were abroad and gave us excellent feedback on the usefulness of attending this.

We are continuing to monitor guidelines from UK Government and WHO to ensure the safety of all our students and staff. Our programmes and courses are currently running continuing to run online under the guidance of the UK Government. We accept there are many challenges to be faced in this and thank all students for their patience in any issues and problems faced.

All our Internships - the most popular being Medical Internships - are currently still  postponed until further notice following the instructions of our UK doctors / clinics / companies who are in charge of these Internships. We anticipate the Internships including the Medical Internship will be up and running in the early Summer and by June and will update all parents and students concerned.

Whilst we are still expecting all summer courses to run as normal, we are constantly monitoring the UK Government guidelines and will post updates to all those concerned accordingly.

Since our last report on 2nd April 2020 the situation in UK has improved greatly and whilst we have a long way to go, we continue to make progress. The crisis of the COVID -19 situation seems to be easy off. I understand there is much uncertainty for all of us however please be assured that our staff is continuing to do our best and working tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for all our students.

Whilst all summer programmes and Internships and any upcoming year round programmes are still on course to run and we hope the situation will allow this, we understand if you would like to postpone your course for later date in Summer 2020 or even till next year  2021 at this stage. In view of this and despite our Terms & Conditions we have allowed all students to delay and postpone their course either for a later Summer Course date in 2020 or till next year 2021 with no administration charges or postponement fees or deductions of any kind incurred. Please income us of your intentions by email.

I once again would like to thank all of you for your patience, support and for understanding the situation to find solutions to this global challenge.

I wish you and your families all the best and will continue keep you updated with further news as needed.

Stay Safe.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Parents / Students of Lite Regal Education and Lite Regal International School

I wish all our students in London and elsewhere in the world a Happy Easter. I realise that many of our students have returned overseas to be with their families over Easter whilst this pandemic is still in our midst. My thoughts are with the  families and students of our College to all be safe and well. As spring arrives in the UK, flowers and cherry blossom are in bloom  -it is the season of regeneration and birth. However it is with much sadness I feel on how much our lives have changed in the last few months and the many lives lost and hard working families losing jobs and much needed income due to this pandemic. I am a great believer in humanity and that we will find solutions to our problems and with the world governments and all of us working together will overcome the COVID-19 situation. Until then I urge you to remain safe and follow your own government guidelines. 

Given the pandemic we are working remotely at the recommendation of the Government, however you may still contact us on the normal phone line – 0207 460 5107 or email : info@literegal.co.uk and info@litecollege.co.uk. At this time we hope you do understand that emails and calls may take longer to reply to and be shorter than normal and we do apologise for this.

We would like to assure you that we are doing our best to manage the situation that the COVID-19 epidemic has brought to us all. As a school we carry a duty of care and support for all our students and parents. We have been established since 1993. I, as the founder of this School and Principal, throughout those years have  never faced a similar situation as this. We will face and deal with any problem in the next few months head on and work with all parents and students in finding solutions to "problems". We will continue to educate and inspire you in the best way we can.

As you may be aware the coronavirus situation is fluid and information changes on a daily basis. We are taking advise continually from the Department of Education and the UK Government as well as WHO.

Please look at the relevant sections below that concern you.

Kind Regards,

Mr. Milan LeBloch BSc(Hons), MSc
