We are thrilled to announce that the IH London school building will be reopening from the 1st of September 2020. All of our courses will gradually be restarting their face-to-face options throughout the month including English, Teacher Training and Executive Courses along with Foreign Languages at the end of September. 

Our CEO, senior managers, student welfare managers, teachers, operations team, sales team, and social programmes team, have all worked together to put measures in place to allow students to learn in person again, while staying safe.


Safety Measures for Face-to-face Classes


  • We have changed the times of our daytime English lessons, so that students can travel to the school when it is quieter
  • Class sizes will be 8 maximum for large rooms and 6 maximum for medium rooms to enable social distancing
  • Break times will be staggered so students are not moving around the corridors or in communal areas at the same time
  • As much as possible, the location of classes will be staged across different floors to ensure separation is maintained between different classes
  • There will be a one-way system for using the two stairwells (this will be signposted and explained)
  • Classrooms will be sanitised after each session
  • Hand sanitiser will be available on each floor
  • Hand sanitiser will be available in each classroom
  • The school building will be cleaned and sanitised every day with sweeps every hour


IH London

We have a large, spacious school in Covent Garden, London, with nine floors, big, light, airy classrooms and open plan areas throughout the school.

The world keeps changing, but we strive to keep teaching and learning. We have been proudly serving students for over 65 years and will continue to do so now and always, no matter how strange and difficult the circumstances. Take a look at our special FAQs page on our website to find out more about our return to face-to-face classes.


Online Courses


We are also pleased to announce that alongside the return of our face-to-face classes, our online courses will continue to be available. They have been extremely popular and will become part of our permanent range of courses across our departments.
