Cambridge Academy of English Coronavirus update: March 2020


Clear blue skies and bright spring leaves on the strangest of days.

Like all other UK schools and many around the world, Cambridge Academy of English – CAE in Girton closed to students on Friday 20 March 2020. Our wonderful school building remains closed until we have permission to re-open.

Our first responsibility remains the health and safety of our students, staff, homestay hosts and local and international partners. Arrangements are in place for those students who have not yet been able to return home safely. They are staying at home with their hosts and continue to meet CAE teachers and welfare staff online to continue classes and for interaction and support.

The CAE office is open with core staffing in place.

Contact us by email on with urgent concerns. We will do all we can to assist as quickly and as fully as we can in these every changing time.

Thank you for your patience and support. Stay safe and healthy. And keep in touch.
