COVID-19 Update

Leiths: safe, secure,
and ready to welcome you back

We really missed cooking together in person and we are delighted to be able to welcome you back safely to the school.

Following the updated guidance from the government, limiting social gatherings of more than six people, some students have understandably been in touch. Please find the recent guidance from the government here.

As Leiths is a school, we are exempt from the six person rule, and will continue to run all courses as planned. However, we wish to reassure all of our students that we continue to be vigilant in all areas of our operation. Our kitchens are adhering to strict social distancing rules, with reduced numbers, increased cleaning and sanitisation. We are doing everything necessary to be smart and safe and we are ensuring our students are doing the same. If you're not feeling 100%, you must stay home. If you feel something coming on, err on the side of caution. And if you've already booked and come down with something, there won't be any cancellation repercussions. Your health and safety is our number one priority.

We are running kitchens with smaller numbers of students to enable safer distancing, but still with our normal teacher to student ratio (1:8) for Diploma courses. We are using different methods of teaching; managing spaces and timings in the building to allow every student their space.

Our kitchens are always scrupulously clean but we have increased and escalated the cleaning schedule to include a full deep clean of common areas between occupations by each student group.

Please find a summary of our Covid-19 Health & Safety Plans here, with all the key points and information you need for a safe session in our kitchens, which have been newly configured for optimal social safety. Before your course we will also send you detailed health and safety points. We are of course updating procedures as things change.

In these exceptional circumstances all students who have booked places on our courses will be offered the opportunity to cancel or reschedule their course.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during these changing times and look forward to cooking with you at Leiths soon.
