Due to the recent Government announcement and advice we are postponing all adult education courses until the end of June. This is subject to change depending on future announcements.

We ask for your patience during this time and will be contacting all students in due course with regard to re-arranging course dates.
Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our employees and visitors.

Dillington House wishes to emphasise that this cancellation is due to government guidance and not linked to a direct case of Coronavirus. In these worrying times, our thoughts are with all who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

We are committed to re-opening Dillington House as soon as possible and continue our tradition of providing a wide range of high quality education courses.

Please support us and each other during this outbreak, stay safe and look after each other during these uncertain times.
