Whilst we would take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year as indicated on our home page we share that we have extended our Christmas Break.

In response to the governments introduction of Christmas bubbles we have taken the decision to extend our break until Monday 11th January 2020.  This allows all staff and students time to re-establish their own bubbles and we believe this will give us the best chance for all to remain healthy and safe.  

Students and staff at CANTO Learning were able to get into the spirit of Christmas on 9th December 2020 by supporting Save The Children with their annual appeal.  Students and staff wore if they wished a Christmas jumper to support this worthy cause.   

CANTO Learning began Academic Year 2020-2021 as planned on the 9th September 2020.  Although there are some changes to our programme due to the current pandemic it is great to see students and staff returning to commence this academic year.  We look forward to seeing what our students achieve this year despite the new challenges we will all face this year. 

Although CANTO Learning remained closed for longer than I believe any of us expected initially we are pleased to say that we have started our phased re-opening.  It was been great to see some of our students and staff re-enter the building for the first time over the last week or so.  We continue to work hard to make sure all can remain as safe as possible but it is good to see these first cautious steps taking place.

During the lockdown period CANTO Learning had to say farewell to a member of staff.  Monique who was part of the senior leadership team has decided to step away from her role although she will continue as an active trustee.  We thank Monique for the hard work she put into our new business venture alongside others in the SLT.  We are sure that these new areas will bring great opportunities to our students.

Monday  the 20th January 2020 saw staff, trustees and students wish Barrie Willis well as he retired from his role as chair of trustees.  Barrie founded CANTO Ltd in 1992 and for his work in serving his community through CANTO he earned an MBE several years ago.  Although Barrie had retired from CANTO and the day to day running sometime ago he has more recently played an active part as chair of trustees.  All were able to recognise the huge part Barrie has played in the creation of our organisation.
