Our focus is on delivering an exceptional educational experience for students while maintaining the safest possible environment for our community.

Following the government’s announcement on 19 July on the ending of Covid-19 restrictions in England, the Academy resumed in-person teaching and orchestral and ensemble activity on Monday 13 September 2021.

The Academy has a dedicated team managing and monitoring the response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will always adhere to current government guidelines and respond quickly to the evolving situation.

We were pleased to announce the return of in-person audiences to our Autumn programme of events on 1 November – full details are available on our What’s On pages. You can also keep up to date with what our staff and students are doing via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

With more people in the building, we are doing everything we can to ensure everyone’s safety. This includes continuing with some measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 - you can read our full Covid-19 risk assessment here.
