Corona Virus Update

Following the UK government announcement this evening regarding the closure of all schools and colleges from this Friday, Macclesfield Tutorial College will be closing to all students once lessons conclude this Friday, 20th March 2020.

Given the extraordinary global situation, we recognise that these extreme measures are necessary to safeguard everyone’s health. However, we do not underestimate the importance of our students’ education and have been working hard to ensure that we are able to offer alternative methods of support.

Talk to us – we’ll do our best to help

If you currently receive supporting tuition from us and would like to discuss how we can continue to provide lessons, please call or e-mail us. With the kind cooperation of many of our tutors, we are able to consider home visits (subject to the current NHS advice) and/or online lessons.

For MTC students currently studying full GCSE and A Level courses, you should already have received communication from us to present the available options for you. If you have not yet talked to us about this, please get in touch and we will work out a plan to maintain as much of your on-going studies as is possible.

Naturally, many customers may wish to place lessons on hold at this difficult time. Please let us know if that is the case.

Summer 2020 Exams

This evening, it was also announced that all GCSE and A Level exams scheduled to take place this May/June are cancelled. At this point, we are not able to provide further clarification as to exactly what candidates should expect. Over the coming days and weeks, we will continue to liaise with the examination boards, and Ofqual directly if necessary, to determine the next steps. We fully appreciate the stress and concern this will cause to everyone who was expecting to sit exams this summer but ask for patience as the very serious consequences of Coronavirus unfold.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Best wishes and good health to everyone.
