COVID-19 Update

Due to the coronavirus outbreak Leiths had to make the difficult decision to cancel all planned courses (except our online courses) until the end of June.

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

If you are currently in the process of taking a multi-part course, you will be offered new dates to complete the course later in the year.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this unsettling time.

We very much look forward to cooking with you at Leiths in the near future.

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

We hope you have been enjoying our #LeithsTakeover lockdown cookalongs as much as we have. However, we don’t know about you but we really miss cooking together in person. We truly cannot wait to have you with us again, and we're getting everything lined up to welcome you back safely to the school so we can enjoy making food together again.

But when the time does come for us to open our doors to students, we are doing everything necessary to be smart and safe about it.

We will ask our students to do the same. If you're not feeling 100%, 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 will be 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 an escalated cleaning schedule to include a full deep clean of common areas between occupations by each student group.

We are summarising our Post Covid-19 Health & Safety Plans, with all the key points and information you need for a safe return to our kitchens, which will be newly configured for optimal social safety. We'll be publishing these soon, once government guidelines are confirmed, and we can ensure we have covered every possible detail. We will update these procedures as things change and evolve, so be sure to check back here before you check in.
