We are aware that due to current Covid restrictions future applicants have not been able to visit the academy, therefore we have attached a virtual tour below, which we hope you may find useful. We will be holding virtual taster sessions for the time being and further information regarding this can be found under the Schools - New Courses tab.

Although our apprentices are not working in salons at the moment due to the Covid 19, they are continuing with their training.
